Analysis of the current P. vannamei situation (22 June 2020) by Willem van der Pijl (Shrimp Insights):
China’s imports are flat or slightly down.
US imports in 2020 have so far outperformed 2019 every month, even in April (+6%).
Europe’s imports, particularly Italy (-95%), dropped significantly from April onward.
Prices at origin may increase until end of august but are likely to take a hit when Asia’s new crop is harvested in September.
