Abstract

Global shrimp production as well as trading values and volumes have grown significantly in the past 20 years. The major shrimp producing countries – China, Indonesia, India and Thailand have also experienced substantial increases in recent years. The main shrimp species produced world wide is white-leg shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei which has replaced the native giant black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon especially in China and Thailand. Recently, government of India has given permission to import the species to India. In recent years, production of P.monodon declined mainly due to disease problems. The Better Management Practices (BMPs), when well designed and implemented can support producers to increase productivity by reducing risk of shrimp health problems as demonstrated in some farms in Andhra Pradesh by the joint MPEDA/NACA project. The latest development is organic shrimp farming which has already produced good results in some countries. The cage culture of shrimp is another important development.
