Promising to tell you the Prawn, the whole Prawn and nothing but the Prawn…….here I shine a light on global shrimp aquaculture and downstream markets……for those looking in from outside and those inside interested in the wider outside. Food trends, intelligence, tech, regulatory, investment and some fun, way out, or even wacky, shrimp material….
Some general information about vibrio and a) biofloc process is not ubiquitous at all where the major shrimp growing is done to satisfy commodity markets b) vibrio is also found in the sea so should there be concern to go swimming c) Taiwan shrimp industry collapsed due to vibrio well point infection – maybe a good pre filter technology for shrimp hatcheries also? Or does chlorine and thiosulphate work just as well?
Unsure exactly what the sell is – surely it should be the shrimp harvest as the profit? There are plenty of treatment processes being offered by RAS and equipment companies. From mechanical, chemical, biological, electrical (pulsed ozone, UV, cold plasma).
For God’s sake sell the frigging shrimp guys. I tried to buy the shrimp from Medina del Campo here in Spain over Internet but did not work….
I remember in the 1970’s swimming off Monaco where floating human feces was our major problem. You had to water ski around the shit. The Oceanographic Institute in Monaco released an exotic seaweed accidentally into the sea when cleaning out a tank back then.
In the 1980’s vibrio was also common. Sea urchins were carriers. Offshore boats were collecting the seaweed every year for decades from the release – not plastics! Talk about near shore beach cleanups. Tourism and all that…
In the UK in the 1970’s children were receiving police in all schools as the Dangerous Litter act went from £10 to £100. Celebrities were used in the Keep Britain Tidy – Tidyman campaign. It was very public and children got involved – it was a jolt for Baby Boomer families because that education led to children shaming adults…….even in public………..shame is more that world did not learn faster.
Generation X parents were not all on board yet its only from Millennial on that there was 100% on boarding – but by then their near environment was well covered.
……my daughters, yes my daughters, at 12 years old, have a friend who is competing as Spanish representative in JESC – Junior Eurovision song contest. She went to the beach to do the video on saving the Oceans and plastics and all that good stuff….but guess what….my daughters say they could not find any plastic on the beach and had to take some with them for the shoot!
