Reports from Vietnam continue to paint a grim picture for the future of giant tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) farming.  Currently, farmers are getting from $3.90 to $5.25 a kilogram (depending on size) for their animals, versus $6.40 to $7.90 in 2007, says Le Anh Xuan, a tiger farmer in the Mekong Delta.  Some farmers are holding product off the market, hoping that they can get a better price later, even though their operating costs are escalating rapidly.
 
Government officials say that high production costs and high interest rates have forced processors to cut back on purchases of tiger shrimp.  One processor who previously purchased about 300 tons of tiger shrimp a year has cut back on tigers and purchased more white shrimp (P. vannamei).
 
The government is ready to support more farmers switching to white shrimp.  In 2009, Ca Mau Province plans to stock 6,000 hectares with the western white shrimp (P. vannamei) next year.
 
Tren Thien Hai, chairman of the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers, however, thinks the industry should stick with tigers.  He argues that switching to white shrimp would expose the industry to fierce competition from all the white shrimp farmers in the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.  He thinks the smaller market for tigers might be more profitable for Vietnamese farmers.
