Export shrimp’s price list

AS you know the price of shrimps in the every place in the world are different . Why The most clichéd answer may be is the difference in quality, which is usually not acceptable to people. Fortunately, the quality of shrimp, unlike many foods, is easily recognizable to the naked eye. The appearance of the shrimp, the shape of the shell, the presence or absence of broken and crushed shrimp, the presence of shrimp waste in various types of PD and PUD forms are some of the things that can be seen and judged.


Specifications of first class shrimp (A greed):

  • Shrimp skin is quite firm and attached to the meat
  • The head is completely healthy and attached to the body.
  • There is no red head and no black head between them
  • No shrimp are broken or crushed.
  • Shrimp have not lost their interstitial water
  • The amount of met bisulfite sodium is in accordance with the standard


Specifications of second grade shrimp:

  • The shell is slightly soft
  • Appearance is relatively healthy
  • It has no stains or defects
  • Shrimp have not lost their interstitial water
  • The amount of met bisulfite sodium is in accordance with the standard.

3.Specifications of third grade shrimp:

    • Shrimp are broken and stained
    • Shrimp left over from grades one and two
    • Shrimp have not lost their interstitial water
    • The amount of sodium sulfite is in accordance with the standard

The most important reason for the decline in the quality of shrimp in the way of fishing and non-standard transportation to processing centers is carelessness in choosing the method of fishing, freezing and choosing longer routes can cause significant losses to breeders. In export shrimp, special attention should be paid attention to the standard and the type of request of the destination country. First-class shrimp have a longer shelf life and are more suitable for longer journeys, and are often purchased by European countries.

Now we are familiar with how to prepare shrimp for export, but for shrimp export, knowing the customs laws and standards and certificates required for export is required, which we will mention in a separate article.

In the end, it should be mentioned that: Shrimp export requires expertise and experience along with knowledge of international aquatic export laws, Barfo Group is ready to cooperate with all respected exporters and breeders in this field by having experienced and knowledgeable experts.
