Disease Kills Shrimp Output, Pushes U.S. Prices Higher

22 Oct 2020  |  WSJ
A new disease has significantly impacted shrimp production in Thailand, leading to a substantial decrease in the country's shrimp exports to the United States. The disease, which previously affected shrimp stocks in China in 2009 and Vietnam, emerged in Thailand late last year. As a result, U.S. shrimp imports from Thailand have seen a sharp decline, with a 27% drop last year and a further 23% decrease from January through April. This has caused shrimp prices in the U.S. to rise by 20% recently, as reported by Thailand's leading shrimp exporter. The situation is also affecting Western restaurants and retailers, which are facing higher prices for shrimp.
