Shrimp Exports, January/June, 2014 and 2015


From January through June 2014, Thailand exported 61,313 metric tons of shrimp worth $778 million dollars.


From January through June 2015, it exported 62,130 tons worth $651 million dollars, an increase of 1.33% in volume and a decrease of 16.3% in value from 2014.


The increase in volume in 2015 implies that Thailand is recovering from the early mortality epidemic that has devastated the industry for the last couple of years, and the decrease in value reflects the drop in prices from 2014 to 2015.
