Argentina red shrimp party over as farmed product floods China, European market | Undercurrent News

Reads like Seafood News Media being used to talk down prices from demand side.

As I only do the headline news bit – unless I can get in – then I wonder where the sources are from?

Certainly in Southern Europe if you sold langostinos ( farmed shrimp) as gambas (ocean caught) you would run into severe mislabelling laws and subsequently illegal activities.

While in UK or Northern European jargon “shrimp” is a catchall phrase….rest of Europe bit wiser.

Red Argentinean lies in a complete different segment in the countries where the real volumes move.

….and now with new value added pricessing capabilities and a rapid rise in quality (Pescanova bigotes advertising) USA is a huge potential market…the rest..

….well let them eat cake!

A move to my own Shrimp Blog

Thanks for joining me!

I have been posting on a restricted Yahoo Shrimp Farming Group site for the past 20 years.

I put up posts of subjects I find of interest related to shrimp aquaculture.

This blog and post sites will help me keep track of information I find – so links to internet information will be strong part.

Will occasionally add in some comments and some rambling.

Target posts related to shrimp 30 per month minimum.

Firmly fixed in trends and futures but looking to archive history stretching back to 1983.
