Growth in shrimp demand is expected to continue over the next two years, amid stunning increases in US imports, orders from Europe and rebounding Chinese demand, according to agricultural lending giant Rabobank.

Shrimp suppliers to Europe and North America are struggling to keep up with demand, a challenge that has gradually become more apparent since the height of the global COVID-19 pandemic last year, and this trend shows no signs of abating.

Given shrimp's short production cycle of between 100-120 days, the state of the markets take on greater significance for producers.
