This report focuses on catch volumes and harvests of different species of shrimp and prawns in Japan, Spain and the US. It also highlights fishing bans, prices, inventories, markets, imports and exports of species detailed in the following index.

INDEX

 
1. ASIA
1.1 Japan – Black tiger shrimp, Indian white shrimp, flower shrimp, Pink shrimp and whiteleg shrimp
 
2. EUROPE
2.1 Spain – Argentine pink shrimp, Argentine stiletto prawn, whiteleg shrimp and black tiger shrimp
 
3. NORTH AMERICA
3.1 United States – Black tiger shrimp, Indian white shrimp, flower shrimp, pink shrimp, whiteleg shrimp, northern shrimp and others
 

 

1. ASIA

1.1 Japan

Black tiger shrimp (Peneaus monodon)
Indian white shrimp (Penaeus indicus)
Whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei)
Pink shrimp (Pleoticus muelleri)
Flower shrimp (Penaeus semisulcatus)

Market

During week 29 the market was still lazy. The summer season, with terrible heat waves, is not good for shrimp consumption. Tea time outside their homes may be the best possibility to consume this product.

Invetories are enough to meet the low demand at this time of the year, despite being lower than those in 2013. The weak position of the Japanese currency did not help Japanese importers to negotiate shipments for the coming harvests, especially with a demanding and highly competitive European market.

Setting Vietnam and Thailand aside due to health and political issues, only India and Indonesia may be supplies with less sowed areas. Prices will have an important role.

However, the race has not started yet.

The consumption of black tiger shrimp, once overshadowed by vannamei, has improved but the lack of product pushed prices up to levels the market does not accept.

The demand for vannamei has declined, so farmed have pushed production down and prices have consequently increased. So only third species are left, those of fresh waters among others.
