Bangladesh Shrimp Market Update : December 14, 2016
The Black Tiger landings for this season in Bangladesh is virtually over. There are some bigger sizes available but the little quantity. At this moment only a couple of processors have some raw material due to their high purchase prices. Other factories do not have sufficient raw material to make new offers. All semi intensive farms are already harvested and dried out at this time.
Most factories are out of inventory. A few factories are having some stock of some BT HOSO semi IQF and some smaller sizes broken or 2nd grade BT. That’s pretty well all that’s available at this time.
Bangladesh farmers are likely to begin stocking ponds in early January & the harvesting should start from end march of 2017.
From end March to mid May the available sizes should be HLSO sizes 26/30 down to 51/60. After mid-May harvesting on larger sizes will start.
