COFI 34 – Prawn futures

Not much has changed over these past 25 years – except for Covid and social media.

We still need to ensure that our aquatic food systems are resilient and meet the growing demand for nutritious, safe and affordable food, while maintaining sustainable ecosystems, economies and societies that leave no one behind.

Mediterranean diet can help achieve sustainability goals, says FAO….shrimp big part of that diet!

Local consumptions are on increase as mature shrimp markets continue growth at pace.

Healthy, compact nutritional package, affordable….non conventional meat…

…..yes shrimp is a big part of Mediterranean diet guys!

FAO support aquaculture technology mainly as a food security issue whilst consider shrimp more as an exported commercial luxury good.

Time this changed!
