Adam Body’s Survey


Adam Body ( posted the following request to The Shrimp List:


I am doing some economic research into global shrimp production trends, and have attached a simple survey spreadsheet that will take less than five minutes to fill in.  The idea is to utilize “crowd wisdom” to arrive at some “best guesses” for shrimp farm production costs (feed, fry, labor) as a percent of total farm production costs for the different shrimp farming systems around the world.  This info should be quite interesting to all of us.  I will send the collated and summary info back to those that respond and request it, but will not post the results on The List unless there is 100% support from the respondents to do that.  The results and emails back to respondents will only contain averages and other basic statistical data.  None or the participants will be identified, nor will any of their data.


Unfortunately, the Shrimp List detached Body’s spreadsheet, so he requested that Listers email him, saying, “Yes please send me the shrimp survey.”  He will email the (very small!) spreadsheet to you.
