The Prawn Games in China… global effect…

Well it certainly is not about hunger but China controlling import flows into country.

Checking for white spot and yellow head in frozen heads-on product. It is a general tightening up on viruses in the wake of ASF (African Swine Fever virus).

For trade it was Saudi off/then on. Iran on. Ecuador off then partial on. All in space of two weeks.

Actually non effect on global shrimp prices – except in China.

That said shrimp imports, now at a better price in China, may start to go up as people look to alternative proteins to pig.

Saudi has green lane visa probably now to China……and of course a €300m Chinese investment to boost aquaculture production…ya!
