Exporting wild caught warm-water shrimp to Europe
The European market for wild caught warm-water shrimp comprises approximately 35% of all European shrimp imports from outside of Europe and can be divided into two segments. First, head-on shell-on (HOSO) and headless shell-on (HLSO) large-size shrimp. Second, smaller sized peeled and deveined or undeveined (PD and PUD) block frozen shrimp. The former is a low-volume, high-value market, the latter is a high-volume, low-value market. This study focuses on the opportunities for wild caught warm-water shrimp from Asia and Africa.
