India Vannamei Outlook : August 4, 2015
Raw material prices remain largely unchanged from last week.
However we have witnessed a decline in landings in Odisha and Kolkata due to heavy rainfall. Farmers MAY increase harvest over the next 7-10 days in the event that heavy rain continues. That would mean a lot of smaller sizes would be harvested. This largely depends rainfall over the next week.
If the harvests do happen we expect a shortage to occur in Odisha and Kolkata over the next few months which would tend to push prices up.
