Prices

The shortage of shrimp in Chine has meant a rise of about 6% in January.

According to the Vietnamese Association of Exporters, in 2017, exports increased by 42%. This rise was registered at the thre main destinations of the European Union: in the Netherlands by 70.5%, in the UK by 54.5% and in Germany by 5.9%. They were due mainly to the advantages of the GSP (Generalised Systems of Preferences).

Indian exports declined in January because of the end of the campaign and the lower demand. Prices remained stable. At the end of January Indian and European authorities will meet to analyse food safety in Indian productions.

Spain

Prics in origin of Argentine prawn, Penaeus vannamei and Penaeus monodon remained the same, according to known supplies.
