I would like to know if the global shrimp industry statistics are up to date and have enough information.

Good day,

Thank you for this inquiry. Our database has a lot of reports on the food industry and a couple of reports about the shrimp industry.  Below, just two reports are highlighted.

Report 1: Rabobank World Seafood Trade Map 2015

Rabobank released this report that discusses the global trade of seafood with a specific section on crustaceans, which is dominated by farmed shrimp.  There is data on the volume of shrimp imports to the US and EU.  There is also a map that shows the key trade flows globally.

Report 2: Transnational Corporations as ‘Keystone Actors’ in Marine Ecosystems

This study on the global seafood industry includes key information on the shrimp industry from the three largest producers of shrimp in the world, CP Foods, Pescanova and others. There is a depiction of their global network of operations and the number of keystone actors in each county and the respective number of countries in which each company operates as well as their subsidiaries.  Then there is a map depiction of regional fisheries and their corresponding economic value.
