September 14, 2018

India is set to overtake China in farmed shrimp production next year. The country overtook China in shrimp exports last year but are on par in terms of farmed shrimp production. President of India’s Society of Aquaculture Professionals Ravi Kumar Yellanki said the country might produce up to 650,000 tonnes of shrimp this year, lower than an earlier target of 700,000 tonnes. Nevertheless this is expected to be in line with shrimp production in China. India produced 600,000 tonnes last year.
