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.
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.
In September 2020, India’s shrimp export volume exceeded September 2019 by 1%. This was the first time since March that India’s exporters managed to exceed 2019’s monthly performance.

In this blog, we’ll take a deep dive into India’s shrimp export in the first three quarters of 2020 and the outlook for the remainder of the year using the latest available broodstock import data.
Oh boy, has the shrimp market been difficult to read. In this blog, I will reflect on whether my forecasts about the impact of Covid-19 on global shrimp demand and supply have been right or wrong. It was, and still is, so hard to read the shrimp market in such a period of global crisis. Writing this blog has enabled me, and hopefully also you, to get a better grasp of what has been happening in the marketplace.
