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.

In many cases the replacement costs can serve as a future indicator of the U.S. market, however, we know that these two markets can also be disconnected. For example, there are times when replacement costs overseas rise while the U.S. wholesale market trends lower. In this example, in theory, the U.S. importer would take a more cautious buying position ...

Disease and Bad Weather cut Shrimp Stocking in Some Areas of China by 20% or More

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Shuichan News] translated by Amy Zhong - May 14, 2018

In Zhuhai, most winter shrimp sold out at the end of April and the remaining small ones were moved outdoor to grow bigger. Though some farmers have increased seed stocking in April, local aquaculture is still haunted by problems like serious diseases and slow seed growth. 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..

South China Farmers Try to Sell Shrimp to Clear Ponds; Seed Market is Chaotic

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Shuichan] translated by Amy Zhong - April 16, 2018

The beginning of March has seen the price contraction of white shrimp in southern China. After the Tomb-Sweeping Day on April 5, most farmers in South China have been occupied with clearing ponds, which has led to the market entry of white shrimp in large quantities. But due to mixed shrimp qualities and limited demand, prices continue to decline.

As statistics show, the price is 30 yuan/jin (1 jin=0.5 kg) (~$9.55/kg USD) for those at ...

Domestic Shrimp Industry Still in Grip of Magical Thinking; Claims New SIMP Rules Big Victory

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [News Anlaysis]  by John Sackton  March 29, 2018

At the start of the domestic shrimp season in Louisiana, the industry remains in the grip of magical thinking.

The Louisiana Shrimp Association is meeting April 7th, and the victory in getting shrimp under the Seafood Import Inspection Program is one of the things that will be discussed.

A blessing of the fleet will follow on April 8th.

Some local shrimp leaders are saying the new emphasis on inspection by federal authorities is the best news local fishermen have received in a while.

The magical thinking is that this measure will change any buying patterns for shrimp.  Last year, the US saw record shrimp imports, and they are continuing to be strong in the first months of this year.

In fact the US shrimp market is expanding and we believe we will see record shrimp consumption when figures are released for 2017.

Seafood Volume Sales Flat, But Bright Spots for Fresh Shrimp, Scallops and Flounder

NOAA Working to Promote Regulations, Establish Reporting Systems for Shrimp in SIMP

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Seafood News] - March 28, 2018

Opponents of imported shrimp in the domestic industry originally wanted to mandate shrimp be included under this NOAA program within 30 days, which would have been highly disruptive, and in effect a non-tariff import barrier.   The final action required NOAA to begin working on the program within 30 days, but set a deadline of December 31, 2018 for implementation.  This gives importers and producers more time ...
