Italy; FAO Representative Predicts Changing Shrimp Market

 
On November 6, 2008, at the Global Technical and Trade Conference on Shrimp in Guangzhou, China, Audun Lem, a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) official, said, in the future fewer shrimp will be traded on world markets because of increased domestic consumption in producing countries.
 
The United States, Japan and Europe will remain the worlds largest consumers of shrimp, but the percentage of exports to them will drop from the current level of 70 percent to between 50 percent and 55 percent, as producing nations focus on domestic consumption and regional markets, Lem said.
 
China, the world’s largest producer of shrimp, could become a net importer in the next five to ten years as more people there add shrimp to their diets.
 
China produced 1.2 million metric tons of shrimp in 2007, more than one-third of total world production of 3.4 million metric tons, but ranks 14th in value and 10th in volume because most of what it produces is consumed domestically.
 
The increase in domestic consumption is not only happening in China.  The home market in Brazil consumes 85% of all the shrimp produced on Brazilian farms, and efforts to boost domestic consumption are being undertaken in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
 
Lem said to expect the continued emphasis on environmental and social issues surrounding how shrimp is grown and caught, and how the workers who grow, catch and process it are treated.  “These issues are not going to go away,” he said of the growing importance of making sure shrimp adheres to sound environmental and social principles.  “That’s why it’s important to make sure those people and groups who espouse such beliefs are among the stakeholders invited to become involved in developing the industry in the future,” he said.
