Shrimp aquaculture: a tale of two pandemics

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted different countries very differently – as illustrated by the stark differences in the performance of the shrimp sectors of Ecuador and Vietnam.

Intensification is the right move. Intensification doesn’t just mean greater stocking densities, it also means better Feed Conversion Rates, more control over biosecurity and lower mortalities. It’s really reducing disease pressure and mortality levels that set good companies apart,” Gorjan explains in this article.
