China’s White Shrimp Market Overshadowed by Low Prices

White shrimp prices have been in decline in China’s main aquaculture regions since late April, and due to prevalent disease, a general attitude of depression haunted the South China market in May when the weather is changeable. For example, the incidence rate of disease has reached about 70% in Zhongshan of Guangdong and trhe local price dropped by about 10 yuan/jin (1 jin=0.5 kg; $1.44/jin USD). Meanwhile, the prices have also dropped by about 5 yuan/jin ($0.72/jin USD) to 7 yuan/jin...

Progress Made at Meeting Addressing Management of Northern Shrimp

According to a news release from FFAW-Unifor, progress is being made to address the management of northern shrimp.

FFAW-Unifor has been fighting for a new Limit Reference Point (LRP) for some time, and made their most recent plea for change at a meeting with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) earlier this month. The DFO held a technical briefing on northern shrimp on Monday where they made some progress, notably including northern cod in the assessment model. However, a decision on the new LRP was not...

Prices of Large White Shrimp in China Increases Due to Swine Fever, Supply

Prices of white shrimp at the size of 40 shrimps/jin (1 jin=0.5 kilo) are reported to have jumped to new high levels in China’s Pearl River Delta region in May due to swine fever and shrimp diseases, according to local traders. As statistics show, there is an increase of about 2 yuan/jin (~$0.29/jin USD) to 4 yuan/jin (~$0.58/jin USD) in most cities, while the price has skyrocketed by...

China Expects to Replace the U.S. as Largest Shrimp Importer

China is not only an important shrimp producer but also a significant importer in the global market. As statistics show, its shrimp output has increased slightly to reach about 1.3 million tons last year. Though the ratio of its output to global supply has dropped from the previous 35% to 26%, it is still the only one able to cultivate more than one million tons of shrimp.

Although China is the largest shrimp producer worldwide and the great popularity of crayfish in the past three years has...

No Coast, No Problem; Venture Near Strathmore Gives Rise to Alberta's First Large-Scale Shrimp Farm

Thousands of kilometres from the nearest ocean, Strathmore, is the last place anyone would expect to find a local source of sustainable seafood.

But this corner of cattle country, best known for its feedlots and livestock auctions, is taking on a decidedly "surf and turf" flavour. Waterford Farms - a 9,000-squarefoot facility located in Wheatland County, just east of Strathmore - is the first large-scale commercial shrimp-growing operation in Alberta, and proponents say it could be...

Newfoundland Announces Plan to Provide More Offshore Industrial Shrimp for Local Processing

Gerry Byrne, Minister of Fisheries and Land Resources, announced a program to give Newfoundland shore processors more access to offshore shrimp caught in Canada's EEZ.  Byrne says this program could see several thousand additional tons of shrimp processed onshore with a potential value of millions of dollars and significant job creation for rural communities.

Offshore shrimp has been landed in Newfoundland and Labrador, the Maritime provinces, Iceland and Norway for many years. In 2018, offshore vessels landed approximately 30,000 tonnes of frozen-at-sea shrimp in...

Alaska April 2019 Fishing Updates

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Lots of fishing is underway in April all across Alaska. 

One sad exception is the roe herring fishery at Sitka Sound where seiners have yet to wet their nets. Typically the fishery has come and gone by mid-March and the harvest called for a nearly 13,000 ton haul.

The herring, which are valued for their eggs, are showing up but they are too small to call an opener. The latest Sitka herring fishery ever occurred on April 15 in 2002...

The Winding Glass: Markets Don’t Care

This column from SeafoodNews Founder and Publisher John Sackton is a new trial feature that may continue as John retires from active management of SeafoodNews.  

The spring is a time when many seasonal price negotiations get underway in fisheries where harvesters negotiate a fixed price.  This certainly happens in Snow Crab, Cold water Shrimp, and Canadian Cod; and to a lesser extent lobster.

Other seafood producers, such as those farming salmon, shrimp, or landing scallops or groundfish see prices vary from week to week depending on the commodity market demand...

Costs Rising Rapidly for Shrimp Producers in Vietnam

The worst situation for  shrimp producers is when there is a glut on the market and prices are down, but your costs for production are rising.  There is no way to pass along the increased costs, and eventually production has to be cut back.

In Vietnam, shrimp and pangasius  producers are seeing a particularly rapid run up in costs in four areas: electrical power, labor, feed prices, and raw materials.

Vietnam has been raising electricity prices to large users, including those who run freezers and processing plants...

Louisiana Shrimp Landings Decline Due to High Water Events, Bonnet Carré Spillway

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is reporting that statewide shrimp landings, both brown and white shrimp combined, have declined as a result of the high water events and opening of the Bonnet Carré Spillway.

In an effort to deal with the heavy rains, the Bonnet Carré Spillway was partially opened in late February, and then again at the beginning of May. This was the first year that the spillway had to be opened twice, and the fresh water has been wreaking havoc on...

Thailand Prioritizes Shrimp Quality Over Quantity for Exports to China, SE Aisa

Thailand is renowned all over the world for its shrimp. Its annual output once reached as high as 600,000 tons, but the local industry has undergone drastic changes since disease outbreaks in 2012. Nowadays industry participants attach more importance to the environment, product qualities and labor than to ways of increasing output.

Consider the case of Thai Royal Frozen Food (TRF), a significant shrimp supplier to China. Now it plans to invest more in product traceability than in raising processing efficiency ...

A Closer Look at Shrimp Fisheries in Southeast Alaska

This is Alaska Fish Radio. I’m Laine Welch –

Southeast Alaska is the state’s biggest producer of America’s number one seafood favorite: shrimp.

Highly Ironic That Export Award from Gov’t Went to Maine Company Most Hurt by Seafood Tariffs

[The Winding Glass is an opinion and commentary column from SeafoodNews Founder and Publisher John Sackton.]

The danger of an escalating trade war with China for the seafood industry runs on two tracks.  For importers, especially of tilapia, the prospect of a permanent 25% tariff will force a major reshuffling in the category.  Unless the exemption on taxing products from the US processed in China is revoked, other items like pink salmon, twice frozen cod and pollock, and processed flatfish which are...

Georgia DNR Set to Open Shrimp Season, Close Oyster Harvest

As one season opens, another closes. Georgia's Department of Natural Resources announced that the state waters will be open for commercial and recreational harvest of shrimp beginning Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 8 a.m. A few days later, on Saturday, June 1, Georgia's territorial waters will close to commercial and recreational oyster harvest.

China’s Closed Fishing Season Having Unignorable Ripple Effect

China’s closed fishing season, which reduces its domestic seafood supply and pushes prices upward, began this May.  For example, white shrimp prices have been on the rise in the South China since mid-April, and some are set to exceed 70 yuan/jin (1 jin=0.5 kilo) during the closed fishing season.

This season is bad news for live seafood lovers in China but a great opportunity for overseas suppliers. Consider the example of Ningbo, which has just started its four-month-long closed season...

Chinese Demand for Imported Shrimp May Grow 20% This Year

Recently 7FRESH of JD has released a list of fresh food products popular online during the first quarter. Regarding China’s domestic seafood, crayfish have become a hot commodity among foodies. Meanwhile, in terms of imported seafood, Ecuador’s white shrimp and Chile’s salmon steaks stand out and have won over consumers in the huge market.

In addition to statistics from China’s e-commerce giant, customs statistics also illustrate the great demand for imported seafood. For example, as official data show, there has been a great increase in China’s import of white shrimp from Ecuador...

Stirling University Scientists Question Environmental Benefit for Plant-Based Shrimp Feeds

As fishmeal costs have risen, and as environmentalists have targeted fisheries on ‘forage fish’, there has been a widely held assumption that substituting plant based ingredients for fishmeal and oil was a positive step for environmental conservation.

Now scientists at Stirling University in the UK, probably the leading aquaculture research institution in the world, have published a paper showing the issue in shrimp feed is not clear cut.

 The new study led by PhD researcher Wesley Malcorps challenges this popular theory.

The multidisciplinary team researched...

China's Seafood Imports to Increase This Year

Seafood prices in China usually stay at high levels around festivals. But during this Tomb-Sweeping Day, the balance has been stricken between the country’s shrimp supply and demand, and prices are likely to decline shortly after the festival. The large supply of imported shrimp is one main reason for the situation this year.

For example, Ecuador exported 56,956-tons of white shrimps to China and Vietnam this past January and February, most of which are estimated to be eaten by Chinese. This means an increase of around 60% in Ecuador’s export to...
