L. vannamei Production Review and Outlook
L. vannamei shrimp production is dominated by Ecuador, China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Every country has significant ambitions in terms of increasing its shrimp production. How shrimp production expands in each of these major producing countries differs from one to another. While one country is on a clear trajectory of intensification, another country is expanding into fresh water farming, and yet another is developing shrimp farming in new geographies. In this seminar we will present the latest production data of these five countries and the drivers of growth. We will then look at each country’s export performance. While expanding shrimp production, all producers look to expand their markets and while doing so increasingly engage in fierce competition for market share.
