Fishy seafood press – and why prawn don’t have mouths…

Prawns eat with multiple level chopsticks…shredding protein in a algal/bacterial/phage soup and hoovering in suspended food particles…..no fishy swallow whole fleshy mouths.

Obviously buying & importing companies do not want diseases – to force shrimp prices up.

Div 1 has been about since 2013.

George here is trying to capitalize on a situation….and directionalize a % of industry.

Prices should go up for farmers and these downstream signatories of the letter would do well to help to develop better prices to farmers and help promote markets instead of trying to globally commoditize production industry totally.

Pushing back upstream for control only works to a certain degree….opening markets downstream surely is more productive?

Going native – un ejecutivo chileno tratando de salmonizar la industria del camarón….

Se va a quedar empanada con camarón…

……..Macrobio shrimp hatchery was designed and built in the 1980’s.

While this engineer was probably still at school shrimp industry was growing apace – obviously not in Chile though. I am sure he will learn lots about shrimp aquaculture and enough to understand that there is nothing the salmon sector has to offer that has not already or, is not currently, being pursued.

Tad arrogant – industry sector has done well and is even bigger that salmon and more profitable for more people.

There is not much similar between vannamei shrimp and salmon after all. Just that they are grown in water.

Genetic methodology used may be similar (so what!) but nutrition is different (shrimp warm-water omnivorous – salmon cold-water carnivorous).

Water quality totally different – shrimp nutrient rich tropical : salmon pristine clear coldwater.

Process/production standards – came about first with shrimp. SOP’s, HACCP, BAP, etc – all first with shrimp followed by salmon sector.
