‘Drastic’ drop in Indian shrimp seeding likely to have global impact by fall | Undercurrent News

20% drop is not that drastic and will not have global impact. India is not the only player and we have seen this all happen before out of other producer countries over past two decades…

…..not clear from headlines:

A. If a lower stocking density the target could be faster growth to bigger sizes on less feed and for better sales pricing. Still same biomass volume harvest just bigger shrimp.

B. If it is same stocking density but lower surface area seeded then same small sizes being chased. Small sizes are cheap currently but competition is there. If prices go up then farmers can always harvest early.

So while some people consider this will have a global impact unfortunately they are newly understanding how the global shrimp farming industry flexes…
