At the present time the average Mexican person eats 26 pounds of seafood a year with local production unable to keep up with demand. However fish farmers have problems with high electricity, infrastructure, and poor quality feed.
Aquaculture Permits take less time to get in Mexico than US. The cost of labor is substainably less than US. The US provide limited financial aid to Mexico. Mexico has vast shore lines and areas for aquaculture. Could the US some how help out with aid to Mexican Aquaculture or help aid in the private placement of capital to help out.
Another major problem with Mexico becoming an aquaculture powerhouse is the lack of train aquaculturist, Mexico does no require student to go to high schools that do exist charge a fee and in the more rural area there are no high schools. Mexico does have some aquaculture university related classes. Some corporation are doing there part helping educate their employees by subsidizing their studies. There is now a program similar to the GED called Kuepa, where students can get the equivalent of high degree.
However with major development in improved development of ponds for Tilapia and catfish, more hatcheries, and cold storage might help ignite the Mexican aquaculture production.
