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….
Similar marketing ploy to what we had with Marine Harvest International shrimp division back in the mid 1990’s. Sell the seed and feed, support with grow-out. Receive final product, brand and export. Ours was Xcellent Brand at Empress International
Is this where also DNA traceability comes into play for customers? On the pack B2C?
A US shrimp farm project based on a non US genetics breeding line combined with recent UK disease problems from US (and OIE) approved exotic shrimp imports puts into question the current US exotic shrimp breeding program efficacity and, in fact, the whole controlled movement of live vannamei globally.
Growing exotic shrimp in US using a genetic line that is also exotic to US is certainly one way to restart the local shrimp aquaculture industry.
