Shrimp Output Set to Fall in India

Shrimp Output Set to Fall in India

Shrimp production in India is likely to drop this year as low prices and fear of spread of diseases among shrimps have forced aquaculture farmers to cut production in the farms. The outbreak of viral diseases has increased the economic risks and slowed the industry development.

The prawn farming industry has said to be down by half in south Andhra Pradesh while in north and central parts of the state, the situation is better with 80% of the farms well stocked compare to last year, the shrimp production in the country which went over 6 lakh tonnes. Furthermore, farms in Gujarat and West Bengal too will have lower production. As a result, the hatcheries will suffer heavy loss as they could not sell much seeds to the farmers.

Nearly 2 years after the epidemic, the Federal Government is still working to enforce white spot testing on raw prawns which are being imported as breaded, crumbed or battered.

With white spot virus still appearing in Australian supermarkets, this raises troubling doubts about Australia’s readiness to fight a virus that could lead to the destruction of economy.
