Emergency Harvests

At its annual meeting in April 2006, the Thai Shrimp Association elected 20 board members from various segments of the industry, such as farming, feed milling and processing, and re-elected Somsak Paneetatyasai as its president.

After the meeting, Aekpoj Yodpinij, TSA secretary and shrimp farmer, said:

More than 50% of the whole shrimp delivered to the Mahachai Auction Market in March and April 2006 were smaller than 80 count per kilogram, Normally only 40% are under 80 count. Because so many small shrimp were harvested, the price of small sizes dropped by 13 to 26 cents a kilogram and the harvest of large shrimp in July and August will be smaller than expected!

In the south, farmers face whitespot, Taura and bacterial diseases. In the central and eastern provinces, there are problems with yellowhead and whitespot. When disease strikes, farmers resort to emergency harvests, hence the current glut of small shrimp.

Department of Fisheries documents show production of black tiger and white shrimp from January to March 2006 was 10% lower than in the same period in 2005. From December 2005 to March 2006, the number of postlarvae stocked dropped by 16%. High fuel prices have forced commercial shrimp fishermen to stay in port, so there's a shortage of shrimp for domestic consumption.

On May 9, 2006, at the Talay Thai Mahachai Auction Market, 50 count whole white shrimp sold for $4.12 a kilo (60 count $3.32, 70 count $2.92, 80 count $2.66, 90 count $2.39, and 100 count $2.26).
