Ministry of Labour Issues Statement on Belize Aqua Culture Ltd. Employee Layoff

The Belize Aqua Culture Limited (BAL), has informed the Ministry of Labour of its intention to make redundant approximately one hundred (100) employees at the company’s operation at Mile 4, Placencia Road, Stann Creek District.

The company states that the reason for downsizing is due to the incursion of significant costs in the fight against a disease outbreak that is affecting the entire shrimp industry. Substantial efforts are underway to rebuild and make its operations profitable in Belize, with a view to re-employ affected employees at a later date.

The company intends to effect the lay-off proceeding today, March 23rd. The Ministry of Labour, is currently working closely with the management of the company and the affected employees, to ensure that the legal requirements under Redundancy Provisions of the Labour Act Chapter 297 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2011, are complied with, and most importantly that the wages and terminal benefits due to all employees by law are paid.

The Labour Department encourages all affected employees to visit the nearest Labour Office in order to verify their payments.

Shrimps Situation Not Too Bad Without BAL

On Friday we told you that one of the biggest shrimp farms in the south was laying off 100 workers due to continuing problems with Early Mortality Syndrome, a disease that has been affecting the shrimp industry since 2015.

Well, the Belize Shrimp Growers Association says that does not affect the overall industry output because of the 7 million pounds of production that the Industry anticipates this year, Belize Aquaculture's contribution represents less than 3%.

A release from the growers adds that Belize Aquaculture's production technologies are the most complex in the industry - which is why it needs more time to refine its methods.

The release adds that for the first time since this disease outbreak in 2015, all of the shrimp farms are stocking. Overall 2018 is expected to be a rebound year for this industry long crippled by disease.
