Category: Shrimp Bangladesh aquaculture
Why prawn aquaculture is a solution that caused a huge problem – but Bangladesh yet to ride the white vannamei trend in SE Asia…
…pictures show freshwater prawn.
World Bank and others supported only monodon. No real volume in vannamei in Bangladesh. Results are that that strategy caused huge problems….
Prawn competition in the minds eye…
In the market BT and vanna address different segments. BT larger size. Vannamei smaller size but faster thus bigger per year returns for farmers.
Uptick in BT market now is slowly trickling back.
Bangladesh should not be always eying its neighbours and should proudly develop its endemic species. Vannamei culture should be banned from Bangladesh. Would be great branding but do farmers need BT culture economic support then or what…?
