Abstract

Shrimps accounting for over 20% of the global trade in fish and fishery products and commanding a premium value have also been the mainstay of Indian marine products export trade. Frozen shrimp continued to be the largest item exported in terms of value with 59.02% of the total value of export during 2005-06. Around 60% of the volume of frozen shrimp exported was contributed by aquaculture. Shrimp farming provides direct employment to about 0.3 million people and ancillary units provide employment to 0.6-0.7 million people.
