Imports

Black tiger shrimp (Peneaus Monodon)
Whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei)
White shrimp (Penaeus indicus)

Market

We may seay that during week 41 the market reactivated to meet the usual purchases of year-end parties.

Contrary to expectations, the US market is growing. A usual supplier of shrimp to the US, Thailand has registered a slow-down in operations due to the problems they had (EMS, white spot virus, etc). Meanwhile, India, Vietnam and Ecuador have pushed their sales up.

Wholesale prices of imported products are increasing and the market is steady. This is not the situation of domestic prawn: as the catch season moves on, prices are expected to drop and volumes to be better distributed, especially in catering services.

The American economy is willing to improve. If employment goes on increasing, though slightly, consumers will recover confidence and turn to sumptuary products again.
