Demographics[edit]

Korean community[edit]

The creation of a new automotive plant by KIA has led to a influx of Korean immigrants and workers to the area. Colloquially, Pesquería has even been referred to as "Pescorea",[2] a portmanteau of Pesquería and the Spanish name for Korea, Corea.

Economy[edit]

The most important economic activities in the Pesqueria County are cattle-breeding (about 20,000 hectares) and agriculture (about 10,000 hectares).

Suitable clay deposits enabled founding of some works producing bricks and tiles of good quality for local consumption as well as for export.

An automotive plant was built by the Korean KIA Motors company in 2016 for a planned production of 300,000 cars yearly.
