With shrimp prices on the skids, a nationwide program has been established that will allow registered shrimp farms to use their shrimp as collateral for loans.  The shrimp will be stored in one of seven cold storage units around the country.
 
In Phuket (southwestern Thailand), the Phuket Internal Trade Office (PITO) has joined the program.  Somphot Sangkhapong, PITO’s chief, said his office will accept Pacific white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) from any farmer that wants a loan.
 
The program requires 40 to 60 shrimp per kilogram, priced between $3.22 and $4.29 per kilogram, with a total value not exceeding $61,347.  Shrimp farmers will be able to make deposits until October 2007.  They have four months to withdraw their stock after deposit.
 
Somphot said that about 109 tons of shrimp, valued at $469,308 have been deposited by nine farmers in Phuket.
 
This is the second attempt in Phuket to help farmers hit by low prices.  The first attempt—The Blue Flag Shrimp Festival—has been running for two months at three locations.  On average, the shrimp festival has sales of 1.5 tons a day, at an average price of $4.29 per kilogram.
