Shrimps are one of the most common and popular types of seafood consumed worldwide. The demand of shrimps has been high due to their nutritional value and health benefits as they are low in fat, high in protein and a moderate source of omega-3 fatty acids. The trend towards consumption of healthy and low-fat foods and the demand for marine proteins in both developed and developing countries are currently driving the growth of the shrimp market. One of the biggest challenges faced by this market in the last decade was the emergence of the EMS disease in China in 2009. This significantly impacted the shrimp markets in China, Thailand, Vietnam and Mexico. The shrimp market, however, has recovered in the last few years with global production levels reaching 4.5 Million Metric Tons in 2017.
