Fallout from the coronavirus health crisis being felt in the Indian shrimp industry is expected to impact the US market in May with producers in the Asian country's market forced to sell product on the domestic market to keep cash rolling in, industry sources told IntraFish.

The Indian shrimp processing plants that are open are running at between 20-30 percent of capacity as firms already operating with less labor struggle with absenteeism by workers concerned at contracting coronavirus.

Plants started shutting down during the last week of March.
