After switching from the Western white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) to the Western blue shrimp (P. stylirostris), the country’s small shrimp farming industry is off to a slow start.  The move to stylirostris, a large, disease-resistant species, considered to be in greater demand among eateries and restaurants, was thought to be the way forward, but production costs are high for stylirostris, and shrimp farmers who switched to it got significantly smaller yields.  “From 150,000 fry, yields of up to two tons can be expected,” said a local shrimp farmer.  “With vannamei we could get up to four tons.”
 
The Brunei Times reported that imported vannamei were selling for $4 a kilo and locally grown stylirostris for $10 a kilo.  “We are forced to lower our price and sell at a loss, because if we do not, the shrimp will go rotten,” said a local shrimp farmer.  Shrimp farmers face high costs for postlarvae, feed and labor, making it a challenge for them to compete with imported shrimp.  “We know that it is...legal for them to import the shrimp, but asking us to culture a shrimp which is more expensive to our clients and difficult to sell could see the collapse of the whole industry,” said Hj Nasrul Hakim, who helps operate a family business that has been farming shrimp for 13 years.
 
According to local shrimp farmers, “almost eight to ten tons” of vannamei are imported into Brunei every ten days.
 
The arrival of a specific pathogen free (SPF) giant tiger shrimp (P. monodon) seedstock will certainly begin a new chapter in the history of Brunei’s infant shrimp farming industry.  The plan is to grow big animals for the export market.
 
To fulfill export demand, Brunei will need to find buyers that can be satisfied by the production from the Sultanate’s small shrimp farming industry.  For the most part, the 13 shrimp farms will need to combine their production to achieve the numbers that are generally demanded by foreign markets.
