Shrimp Farming & Other Crustacean Farming

Shrimp farming is an aquaculture business that can be in either a marine or freshwater environment, producing shrimp or prawns for human consumption. Commercial marine shrimp farming began in the 1970s, and production grew steeply, particularly to match the market demands of the United States, Japan, and Western Europe. The total global production of farmed shrimp reached more than 1.6 million tonnes in 2003, representing a value of nearly US$9 billion. About 75% of farmed shrimp is produced in Asia, particularly in China and Thailand. The other 25% is produced mainly in Latin America, where Brazil, Ecuador, and Mexico are the largest producers. The largest exporting nation is Thailand. Among the top five individual markets in the EU, shrimp imports during the review period increased in Spain by 8%, in France by 23.7%, but declined in UK by 6% and in the Netherlands by 4.4% and Italy by .6% compared with the same time period in 2014.
