India Shrimp Market Update : October 22, 2015
Indian Vannamei #shrimp raw material prices for 30 and 40 pcs/kg HOSO has risen by 10-20 INR/kg and is expected other sizes will follow suite in coming weeks. Major factor is the low landings throughout Indian East Coast ( Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Kolkata) .
In Odisha and Kolkata only 20-25 % of current crop remains and that too is mostly being taken by packers in Andhra Pradesh to complete their USA orders.
Currently the major vannamei sizes being harvested are for 50 & 60 counts and mostly going to Andhra Pradesh packers.
Landings in Andhra Pradesh are expected to be low in November with some possibility for improvement in December IF current stocking succeeds. Farmers in Andhra Pradesh are mostly doing continuous stocking.
Black tiger supplies are also similar and expect to be exhausted by November. Expect Odisha and Kolkata will not have good landings of either Vannamei or Black Tiger in November.
