New Scientific Paper Shows Seafood Consumption Critical for Brain Development • Seafood Nutrition Partnership

Makes sense but is the effect compounded over generation one wonders?

More reasons to keep eating shrimp.

Cooking Food Alters the Microbiome | UC San Francisco

Surprised that this is an area only recently being studied.

Stay off the raw prawn is what your microbiome is probably telling you…..uncooked possibly loaded with vibrio.

Colombians holders of Guinness record for world’s largest shrimp cocktail…

2009 UK

2011 Mexico

2015 Colombia

Questions remain as to whether a farmed prawn is the right ingredient for a shrimp cocktail as traditionally one uses coldwater prawn and a prawn cocktail sauce mix.

So were these maybe shrimp ceviches rather than cocktails?

Supposed history of prawn cocktail here

FISHERIES…and aquaculture is thrown in there as well!…..World and OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2017-2026

Try this for size…

Aquaculture forecast +25%. 

Growth for fish from capture, fish meal and fish oil +/- 0%

Well, well, well……or a move of current fishmeal usages away from other sectors (how many remember fish tasting like chicken in the 1970’s in the UK)……or more efficient feed conversion rates……..or possibly, slack taken up by alternative raw material developments. 

My sincere wish is that by 2026 global shrimp aquaculture becomes more circular and less dependent on Ocean resources. 

Is the New Meat Any Better Than the Old Meat? – The New York Times

Shrimp is not part of the equation and not included in this article.

I mean why would they be?

No-one says oooh shrimp let’s look for an alternative.

I mean after all why would you?

If you are vegan or vegetarian there are plenty of option out there that are not related to the PRAWN.

Climate change could change the taste of our favorite seafood (in Sweden!)

Warning – fished coldwater shrimp study NOT farmed. Do not extrapolate.

UN and IPCC probably already have – and Greta?

Yes via acidification and for wild fished coldwater prawn (cwp) – mainly p. borealis.

Not to worry farmed shrimp. Tastes here have already been manipulated by pelleted feeds…

……vannamei are sweet…before they get adulterated by processing that is.

Why Africa should ‘stop eating one of its favourite foods’ – and

Prawnmaster suggests that some of this local grain is promoted into aquaculture in Africa. Tilapia is it. Catfish as well.

Especially to support local fish famers with local raw material.

No to imports of feedstock ingredients.

FAO knows this and governments are starting to see apps at local levels. Fish in Africa needs boosting and if food conversion ratios can get one-to-one that is target. One kg pap = 1 kg fish….

Also using wastes to achieve more local circular economy…..

Shrimp/prawn will have to wait it’s day.
