value-chain analysis

Value-chain analysis and project design

When you are considering setting up an aquaculture improvement program or making an investment in the shrimp industry in a particular country, you need to understand the value-chain structure and dynamics. With my thorough approach, I can support you to analyse the value-chain and identify interventions that will make your programs or investments successful.

With these reports, I aim to inspire you to look beyond the obvious and to gain a deeper understanding of the shrimp industry. These reports are written in such a way that they are attractive and accessible for a broad audience. The reports will be publicly available. I aim to publish two reports per year.

The shrimp industry is fascinating. It is a fragmented industry, largely driven by family-owned companies and hundreds of thousands of farmers around the world. More recently, corporate players, banks, investment funds, and start-ups have entered the arena and started to change the structure and dynamics of the industry. There is one thing that all these people have in common: passion for the shrimp industry. I would like to match your passion with my blog. Once a month, I will write about a topic that fascinates me.

Intensive shrimp farms in Sulawesi, Indonesia

I had initially planned to write one long blog in March discussing the latest data on production and exports in India, Indonesia and Vietnam. However, when writing my review and outlook for Indonesia, I realized that it was going to be a long one and that it simply would not do to keep you waiting. Therefore, I decided to break it up into several parts, of which you are currently reading the first one on Indonesia.

Ok, this is going to be a long one, but it will surely be worth your time! Last year, I published the Shrimp Insights Report Series “L. Vannamei Broodstock Report”, and it’s been downloaded more than 1,100 times so far. According to some of my readers, it’s the most comprehensive report on this segment of the industry out there. In this Shrimp Blog, I look at how the broodstock market developed during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and what developments we can expect from broodstock suppliers in 2021 and beyond.
 

BLACK TIGER SHRIMP: MAINSTREAM TURNED NICHE

Bangladesh shrimp ponds (Solidaridad Bangladesh)

My friends in Bangladesh are always so proud of their tigers. When talking about these tigers, they proudly say they actually have two tigers, both native to their country. The most famous one is the Bengali tiger, whose habitat is the famous Sundarbans forest. The lesser known of the two is the black tiger shrimp (P. monodon), which is locally known as Bagda. As shrimp lovers, we all know that black tiger shrimp is one of its kind. It has a delicious flavor, a fantastic appearance and it is often naturally farmed.
