India Shrimp Market Update : November 22, 2016
India vannamei shrimp raw material prices mostly unchanged from last week. Availability remains scarce in Andhra Pradesh.
Andhra Pradesh packers continue purchasing shrimp raw material from Odisha & Kolkata, in some cases paying premium prices in order to secure supplies.
Vannamei season in Odisha and Kolkatta will mostly finish in less than 2 weeks from now. However, some farmers may grow out longer to meet market demand of certain packers.
Currently landings are mainly on HLSO sizes 16/20, 21/25 and 26/30. Smaller sizes like 31/40, 41/50 and 51/60 are extremely scarce now. Some packers who have pending contracts for those smaller sizes are struggling to fulfil at this time.
