Thailand Shrimp Market Update : June 30, 2016
Thailand shrimp current major sizes CPTO 21-25 and larger (up to 13-15), raw PDTO 21-25 and larger (up to 13-15), and EZ peel 8-12, 13-15 and 16-20.
Most Thai shrimp farmers raising shrimp to larger sizes creating shortage on smaller sizes. Prices on smaller sizes has been moving up substantially.

Do not expect Thai shrimp prices to move down as demand from processors continues to outstrip raw material supplies.
