Indonesia/China

China, the Biggest Producer of Farmed Shrimp

 

Shrimp News: On March 4, 2015, I posted an item on Indonesia that said with production of 25 metric tons a month, Depasena was the largest producer of farmed shrimp in Indonesia and that if Indonesia produced 785,900 tons of shrimp in 2015 it could emerge as the largest shrimp producer in Asia—and the world.

 

Dr. Fuci Guo (fuciguo@hotmail.com) reports: 25 tons per month does not make Dipasena the largest producer of farmed shrimp in Indonesia, and 785,900 tons in 2015 will not make Indonesia the largest shrimp producer in Asia—and the world.  China already produced 900,000 tons in 2014.
