Shrimp Feed Production in Southeast Asia in 2005
posted by admin on 17/05/06

Indonesia’s sales at 240,000 tons, excluding southeast Sumatra sales
Zuridah Merican, Editor/Publisher of Aqua Culture Asia Pacific magazine, reports:

In 2005, according to industry sources, the estimated production of marine shrimp feed in Southeast Asia was 1.8 million metric tons, compared to 1.63 million tons in 2004.

China's feed production of 525,000 tons was based on an estimated shrimp production of 350,000 tons and a feed conversion ratio of 1.5. The top 10 feed mills in southern China produced an estimated 292,000 tons of shrimp feed in 2005.

In Indonesia, an estimated 240,000 tons of shrimp feed were sold on the open market in 2005. [The big integrated farms in southeast Sumatra have their own feed mills, so their sales may not show up in the statistics.]

Published figures for Taiwan's shrimp feed production totaled 45,000 tons in 2004, mainly for Penaeus monodon. Figures for 2005 are not available but are estimated at the 2004 level.

In Malaysia, CP Asia Aquaculture will start production at its new shrimp and fish feed mill in March 2006, mainly to meet the demand for P. vannamei feeds.

In southern Vietnam, Grobest, UNI, President, Vietnam's Fish and Shrimp Factory and Cargill produce shrimp feeds. Grobest, with 25% of the market, plans to build three shrimp hatcheries and begin supplying postlarvae to farmers. In June 2005, it increased its production capacity for shrimp feed by 20%. In China, Malaysia and Thailand, Grobest is involved in the supply chain from farming to processing.
