Belize
Belize Aquaculture, Ltd., a Real Powerhouse

In December 2005, Finland's Wärtsilä Corporation (below) was awarded a $19-million contract to construct a power plant for Belize Aquaculture, Ltd., one of the most advanced shrimp farms in the world!

The power plant will have three 18-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 diesel generating sets, all running on heavy fuel oil. Due for delivery in November 2006, it will be installed at the company's shrimp farm in the Stann Creek District of Belize. It will supply electricity to the shrimp farm and processing plant. It will have full waste heat recovery systems to generate steam to be used both for fuel heating and for various uses in the processing plant.

Wärtsilä provides environmentally compatible power solutions. It has more than 12,000 professionals manning 130 Wärtsilä offices in over 60 countries.

Iran
Whitespot Crash

In 2004, Iran produced an estimated 8,000 metric tons of farmed shrimp. In 2005, because of a whitespot outbreak, production dropped to 2,400 tons. In Bushehr Province, the center of production and the province hit the hardest by whitespot, production dropped from 7,000 tons to 400 tons.

Peru
New Investment

In 2005, Peru produced 7,200 tons of farmed shrimp, up 40 percent from 2004. On February 12, 2006, Peruvian shrimp farmers announced they would invest $9 million in the industry in 2006. Currently, Peru has 3,200 hectares of traditional semi-intensive shrimp ponds and 100 hectares intensive ponds, of which 70 hectares are covered with greenhouses. Intensive farms produced about 25 percent of the country's output in 2005!

Thailand
Union Frozen Products

On February 27, 2006, thirteen shrimp companies, including farms, feed producers and exporters, announced the formation of the "Integrated Shrimp Business Operation" (ISBO), which plans to export high-quality shrimp and ensure its safety from farm to importer. In the initial stages, ISBO will work with three shrimp-farming cooperatives on a contract basis and produce 1,000 tons from 20 hectares of ponds. Union Frozen Products (UFP), which processes and markets frozen seafood and ready-to-eat meals, appears to be leading the group of thirteen companies.

United States
New Jersey—Epicore Reports Profits

United States
Texas-NaturalShrimp

NaturalShrimp International, which spent five years and $3 million developing its business plan, is harvesting its first crop of Pacific white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei).

"Fresh shrimp to local markets on a daily basis, that's our concept," company President Gerald Easterling said from the firm's "international headquarters," a doublewide trailer that holds offices, a laboratory and a not-yet-operational shrimp larvae nursery. Easterling predicts that by late 2006, when the first 25,000-gallon raceway is supplemented with four more, harvests will hit three tons of shrimp a week and sell for $6 a pound and up. "It's tricky," said Doug Ernst, a biosource engineering specialist who consulted on the project before joining the company in 2005, "We're tracking 100 variables and 100 procedures."

Venezuela
Bickering

Bickering between the United States and Venezuela could impact the shrimp farming industry. In mid-February 2006, a shrimp industry spokesman said Venezuela might have to shut down its shrimp farming industry because of a shortage of imported feed ingredients, like fishmeal and oil. He said three plants had already closed because they were out of raw materials and could not get import permits for more. They blamed officials at the National Institute of Fisheries and Aquaculture, INAPESCA, for not supplying the necessary import permits. But INAPESCA says that's not true, claiming that one of the companies that shut down has two valid import permits that it's not using.

Vietnam
Processors Import Shrimp from China and India

Some shrimp processors in the Mekong Delta have imported shrimp from India and China because of a shortage of local product. Over the 2005/2006 winter, many Delta farmers chose to let their ponds lie fallow. The passing of the monsoon during this period makes it difficult to turn a profit, and low shrimp prices make the gamble riskier than ever. So, for the first time, processors in the Delta got caught with no product in early 2006.

Vietnam
Shrimp Die en Masse

Weather changes have decimated stocks of shrimp at almost half the farms in Vietnam's southern Ca Mau province. Some 97,000 hectares, accounting for 40% of the province's ponds, have been massively damaged, wiping out up to 80% of the stocks, Pham Van Duc, director of the Ca Mau Fisheries Department, said. Weather changes altered pond temperatures, acidity and salinity, leading to stressed-out animals that were susceptible to disease.
