Agrilife24.com: Aquaculture Nutritionists Network and Aquaculture Innovation Centre jointly organized a webinar on "Bringing Back the Black: An Indian Perspective" on 13th January.
Today India is one of the largest shrimp producers and exporters in the world. India has seen the growth of the black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon, era and its downfall due to disease and brood stock issues. The introduction of the exotic species, Litopenaeus vannamei, has changed the fortune of many in the industry. However the emergence of diseases, carrying capacity and production issues again resulted in the breakdown of the L. vannamei production in India. Seeing the losses in L. vannamei farming, farmers are thinking to revert to growing P. monodon.
This presentation covers all the angles of of bringing back the P. monodon production and into the market space. Farmer’s perspective and preparedness will only decide whether bringing back black tiger shrimp production would prove to be a worthwhile decision for a blunder.
