Shrimp Industry Study: Problems, Prospects and Intervention Agenda
Submitted To: USAID, BangladeshSubmitted By: ATDP Research TeamSeptember 18, 2005
Management Summary:
Shrimp is one of the leading export items of Bangladesh. It accounts for roughly 2.5 percent of global exports and fetches a fair amount of foreign exchange ($250-330million for last three years). There is ample demand in the international market for shrimp and Bangladesh is blessed with an environment congenial for shrimp production. However, the industry is fraught with many obstacles at present.A primary study was undertaken to detect the problems plaguing the different levelsof the value chain of shrimp in the country. Consequently, a study was conducted inwhich the participants were representatives of the various stakeholders in thisindustry. The discussion that ensued aimed to identify obstacles to the growth of theindustry, develop some intervention strategies that would help eradicate theseobstacles . The problems that were revealed through the study are the following:Inefficient management
High mortality rate
Low quality shrimp Negative country image abroad
Indiscriminate catching of brood mothers
Lack of an integrated agriculture policy
Inadequate Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary Measures (SPS)
Lack of standards and Lack of traceability
Vertical competition amongst different actors in the value chain due to supply-demand inconsistency
Lack of coordination amongst donor agencies
Lack of monitoring of compliance on the part of the government
Lack of awarenessUnfair practices by agents
Almost non-existent R&D endeavors

An integrated agricultural policy is a prerequisite for the development of any primary market. However, the present agricultural policy can at best be describedas disjointed and non-functional
There also exist serious shortcomings in the government…...

...Below is a listing of potential Industries and a few examples of businesses and jobs that can be group under each industry. I will take one or two examples and try to explain how it will all work. The Fishing Industry as an example: The old ways of fishing cannot compete in the Global industry today, hence a need for a new and improve means of doing business. Communities will have to designate a portion of the water body to build a fishing port. A fishing harbor will provide a means of docking and undocking, building of boats and other marine lives. Fishing Boats with more sophisticated navigational systems to locate fishes and the ones that can venture into open waters should be built; Canoes just cannot do the job today. Fish Farming must be considered to ensure a year round supply of fish to fuel the industry. Inland fishing should also be looked at. Research Centers must be established to keep the industry at par with new technologies. Students of Universities can engage in Marine Biology and/or Aquarium Science in studying the ocean and its inhabitants and how to protect the environment. Fish Centers with packaging and preservation capabilities should also be built to help control the prices better. A constant source of market must be available to further enhance the industry. Small private businesses that can support this industry are: Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Barbering Shops, Auto mechanics, Law Firms, Communication Centers, Accounting......

What was your hypothesis for this experiment? I believe 60 grams of sea salt will be the best for the hatching of brine shrimp eggs. B. Based upon your observations, what was the corresponding salinity of the solutions in each of the five vials? Please explain your answer. 1) 0 2) 60 3) 90 4) 120 5) 30 Because brine shrimp have succeeded in living in highly saline bodies of water, I believe that the vials with more shrimp that hatched had the higher salinities, and the vials with no shrimp hatching had the lowest salinity levels. B. Please discuss why it was critical to this experiment that an equal number of brine shrimp eggs were added to each vial. It was critical to add an equal number of brine shrimp to each vial to keep the experiment’s quantity variable constant. Otherwise, data collected from each of the different vials could not be accurately compared....

Two Kinds of Sex Pheromones in Lysmata Shrimps

... Sex pheromones in Lysmata shrimps Rui Yang BIO4995 Undergraduate Research Advisor: Dr. Junda Lin July 30, 2010 Introduction Many crustaceans species, such as crabs (Ryan 1966; Gleeson 1980; Seifert 1982; Hardege et al. 2002; Kamio et al. 2002), lobsters (Atema 1984 for a review), and crayfish (Ameyaw-Akumn and Hazlett 1975; Tierney et al. 1984), copulate with the females using chemical compounds as sex attractants. Pheromones as a kind of chemical signals are widespread in aquatic species. To communicate and mate, sex pheromones that emitted by male or female become the most important chemical messages and are also used in mate choice. Sex pheromones are classified two types: distance pheromones and contact pheromones. As a kind of water-borne (aquatic species) or volatile (terrestrial species) chemical, distance pheromones can take effect within a certain range in water or in air Chang et al. 2007, Lim and Greenfield 2008). Kamio et al. (2002) found that post-molt females can release a water-borne pheromone, which is different from pre-molt females. Unlike distance pheromones, contact pheromones are insoluble and coat the female’s body (Kamiguchi 1972, Bauer 1979, Borowsky 1991, Zhang and Lin 2006). In many animals, pheromones are detected by specialized receptor organs, such as vomeronasal systems of vertebrates (Halpern and Martinez-Marcos 2003). But crustaceans sense chemicals through an organ called cuticular sensilla. Antennules, as the first part of antennae,......

...Has the question “How Does the Entertainment Industry have an Effect on Society?” ever crossed your mind? Well I believe that this question has appeared in so many people’s life, especially parents of children and teens in today society. This question raises so many flags in the mind of people today. However, one way that it affects society is that it gives off the impression that you can have freedom of speech in a negative way. Secondly it promotes that violence is the way to settle a situation. Lastly the industry promotes the use of illegal drugs is not a bad entity. Not only will we will discuss the negative that the entertainment industry promotes, we will also state positive ways that can help the industry affect society. Why do you believe that the freedom of speech has an effect on society? It has an effect because to many people believe that they have the right to go around threatening and abusing the amendment that was freely given to them. Furthermore, the entertainment industry has promoted to the world that it’s okay to use foul language to one another. What most people don’t know or understand is that by using negative slurs you’re destroying the person instead of lifting them up. We need more positivity in the entertainment industry rather than negativity. Why is violence such a common act in generations of today’s society? There are so many people in each generation that grew up not knowing one or even both of their parents. Not having your mother......

Aquarius Food Industry

...Aquarius Food Industries (AFI) is a small and focused food company specializing in the production of processed shrimp paste or “bagoong alamang”. Shrimp paste is versatile in terms of acceptability in the market because it is considered as a condiment for different food recipes. The main ingredients of the shrimp paste which is the shrimp fry was directly purchased to the fishermen or from the wet market, thus, it has an advantage of having a low price and abundance of raw materials. The major regions such as Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao are considered as the breakdown of the market for the shrimp paste in the Philippines. In Mindanao, Neptune, the brand name of the product of AFI, is one of the major players in producing shrimp paste, with a market share of 30 percent, together with Lasap, a competing brand of Neptune, and 20 percent for Frisco accounts and the remainder is spread out among few other players. Consecutively, in Luzon, Shrimp paste is normally bought from supermarkets shelves with various competitors that have well-known brands. And in Visayas, the product is hardly sold because of the conventional wisdom that the region is mainly consists of coastal towns which has fresh seafood that are available. The opportunities of the Aquarius Food Industries are the following: (1) Toll manufacturing which means that the AFI will extend their output to the Golden Hands that will increase their sales, (2) SM Bonus is also planning to toll manufacture their products to......

Shrimps Supply Chain

...Supply Chain of Shrimp Production in Thailand 1 Introduction The increased world market demand for shrimp has led many developing countries to enter this appealing market through massive use of shrimp farms which has had a significant impact on the world's mangrove forests because of over production and lack of care for the environment. Thailand has become the world's leader in shrimp exports, and in turn, the greatest violator of mangrove conservation. The Thai shrimp farming industry started to boom in the 1980s and was subsidized by the government. Thailand quickly became an important shrimp export industry and has been the world's largest producer of tiger shrimp since 1991. Because of the financial incentives of producing shrimp from the viewpoint of a farmer are much more attractive, more and more farmers switch from growing rice to producing shrimp. In 2009 Thailand produced over 539,000 tons of shrimp. Due to this rapid expansion and the shift into shrimp farms across Thailand, mangrove ecosystems and other parts of agricultural land have been exploited of their natural resources. The United States and Japan are the largest export markets for Thai shrimp and the demand is steadily increasing. Therefore the Thai shrimp industry has to find ways in which they can cater to the increasing demand while reducing the exploitation of their natural resources. In recent years the government stepped in and created laws to deal with shrimp farmers who damage the fragile......

Bronson Shrimps

...Bronson Shrimp Farms 1. Budgeted cost per package – Original costing system Using the original costing system that used total direct labor hours as the indirect cost allocation base, the total projected indirect costs will be allocated by first determining the allocation rate. Since we will be producing 10,000 packages of headless shrimps at 0.01 labor hours per package, the total number of hours worked would be 10,000 x 0.01 = 100 hours. Similarly, for the 50,000 packages of peeled and deveined shrimp, 50,000 x 0.05 = 2,500 hours would be worked. Therefore a total of 100 + 2,500 = 2,600 hours would be worked to complete the production. The indirect cost allocation rate will be $ 40,125 / 2,600 or $ 15.43 per hour worked. Indirect costs are then allocated as below: | Headless Shrimp | Peeled and Deveined Shrimp | Production estimates | 10,000 packages | 50,000 packages | Labor hours | 0.01 hour/package x 10,000 = 100 hours | 0.05 hour/package x 50,000 = 2,500 hours | Indirect cost allocated | $ 15.43 x 100 = $ 1,543 | $ 15.43 x 2,500 = $ 38,582 | Indirect cost per package | $ 0.154 | $ 0.772 | Next, we calculate the direct costs as follows: | Headless Shrimp | Peeled and Deveined Shrimp | Shrimp | $ 3.5 | $ 4.5 | Foam trays | $ 0.05 | $ 0.05 | Shrink wrap | $ 0.05 | $ 0.02 | Direct labor hours | 0.01 hour | 0.05 hour | Direct labor cost | 0.01 hour x $ 20 = $ 0.2 | 0.05 hour x $ 20 = $ 1 | Direct cost per package | $ 3.8 | $ 5.57 | Lastly,......

Shrimp Anti Dumping

...Indian Shrimp Industry vs Anti-dumping allegation On 31st December, 2003, the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (ASTAC) files an anti-dumping petition against 6 countries including India. The case was backed by the Southern Shrimp Association (SSA) of the USA citing dumping of shrimps by the listed countries in the US market paralyzing the domestic industry. Events and their impact on India and US were as follows: a) The US Department of Commerce (DOC) initiates the investigation and notifies the International Trade Commission (ITC) which approves the case and preliminary investigation and duties are performed by 28th July, 2004. b) There is a fall-out between the SSA and the American Seafood Distribution Association (ASDA) as it backs the import of shrimps from the countries to be charged. c) Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia argue at them being wrongly accused since they export shrimps to the US at the market defined rates but India is in the docks. d) The Us position is that the 6 countries named in the case have grown their space in shrimp imports to it in the years and have captured about 74% of the import to US. e) For India shrimp is the major marine export with plenty of livelihood dependent upon it. f) MPEDA and SEAI forged alliance to not only develop the shrimp industry from scratch but also enable the value chain people with enough money from business through exports at the best possible price. g) The Indian association went against...
