The formation of Hückel-Debye screening in a plasma is studied following as close as possible the procedures used in the usual electric case. The equivalent of the Debye length is found, but the screening as a result is found to be less efficient than for the Coulomb interaction, since the correlation functions decay as the exponential of the distance raised at a power less than one.
