ANALYSIS: Shrimp Replacement Cost From Indonesia Lower Than India

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [SeafoodNews] by Angel Rubio – May 21, 2018

As a continuation of last week’s discussion, this week we look at replacement cost trends relative to prices in the wholesale market and U.S. spot wholesale, particularly for size 16-20.

According to one insider, about 60 percent to 70 percent of the large shrimp get sick due to gloomy and rainy days from late March to mid-April. This takes a toll on the seed’s feed consumption, which in turn affects their growth.

The proportion of seed stocking has reduced by about 20 percent..
