According to Thai Customs, in September 2014, total imports of shrimp (except those of fresh water), in all products, reached 714.9 tonnes, worth over USD 9.2 million, corrected currency.

These figures are up 50% in volume and 36% in value on imports of the previous month.

The average price of imports in September 2014 was USD 7.88/kg CIF.
