GOAL: India, Ecuador to sustain high shrimp production growth in 2018-2019, despite slight taper
DUBLIN, Ireland — India and Ecuador forecast shrimp production growth will decelerate slightly in 2019, but still maintain high levels, according to an industry survey by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
The two countries — key engines of global farmed shrimp production growth in recent years — will be just short of matching this year’s impressive growth in 2018 and 2019, according to the survey results presented by James Anderson, professor at the University of Florida at the Global Outlook on Aquaculture Leadership (GOAL) conference.
This year India — the largest supplier of shrimp to the US — expects to produce around 500,000 metric tons. Ecuador expects production of more than 420,000t, according to the GOAL survey.
