Indonesia Shrimp Market Update : June 25, 2015
In Lampung (South Sumatra) main sizes coming out from the ponds are 50 – 70 pcs/kg HOSO that are suitable to process 31/40 and 41/50 PND. There is very little 21/25 and 26/30 and almost no16/20 or larger.
In Luwuk (Central Sulawesi), some big size raw material will be harvested soon. Farmers are targeting to get 27 – 30 pcs/kg HOSO that can be processed as 16/20 PD Tail ON and 16/20 EZP. However, the transport from the farm area to factories in East Java is quite difficult and takes some time. Thus, this raw material mostly will be processed as 16/20 PND/ PDTO, because there might some scratch on the shell due to long transport.
There is not too much supply in East Java area yet. Farmers are still holding the shrimp in the ponds hoping for higher prices when the buying season is approaching.
