Australia
Prices to Soar

Biosecurity Australia has recommended that the Federal Government ban the import of raw, frozen shrimp and that it implement costly new quarantine measures for processed shrimp. The price of shrimp in Australia will probably skyrocket if the new import regulations are adopted.

Harry Peters, chairman of the Seafood Importers Association of Australia, said that if the regulations were adopted, shrimp would become the food story of the year in Australia in 2007. On December 26, 2006, cooked shrimp were selling for $16 to $35 a kilo at some seafood stores in Perth, Western Australia. Peters said the price would likely jump to between $55 and $78 a kilo when the new measures were activated in 2007.

He said: "The controls would effectively prevent the importation of frozen raw shrimp and add such onerous testing costs to processed shrimp that volumes would be dramatically reduced and prices would certainly rise significantly. In fact, with only one or two laboratories capable of doing the tests, trade would cease within weeks."

Enjoy your prawns this holiday, says Hope Kearney, a shrimp importer in Sydney, New South Wales, because next year you may not be able to afford them. Kearney said seafood lovers have yet to realize how their affair with shrimp will be affected by import regulations being considered by the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service.

Louis Lynch, owner of Seafresh Fish Markets, a retail chain in Perth, Western Australia, said the changes would hurt consumers and retailers. "With these restrictions you'd be taking an enormous amount of product out of the marketplace," he said. "Prices would really go through the roof."

Scott Walter, chairman Australian Prawn Farmers Association, said the proposed regulations would be beneficial because they would protect farmed and wild shrimp in Australia from exotic shrimp viruses.
