The production season for the smaller size of Vannamei shrimps (21/30 & 31/40) in the Bengal region expects to end by early February 2023. Domestic traders are optimistic about the high demand from Bengal exporters for bringing smaller-size production from Orissa and Andhra regions. High fuel prices in India will likely increase the cost for Vannamei exporters from this region. Some South Indian packers, especially from the Tamil Nadu region can attract buyers from the Far East countries due to their low pricing and whiter shrimp quality which has been a Unique selling point (USP) of Bengal region shrimps until W4.
