China currently represents one of the largest markets for shrimp as they form a major part of the regional cuisine. Shrimp are a type of edible decapod crustaceans with a laterally compressed, elongated body and long antennae and legs. They have a low concentration of saturated fats and high amounts of iodine, vitamin B3, proteins, calcium, omega-3s, vitamin D and zinc. Owing to their high nutrient content, shrimp consumption helps in weight management, improves bone and brain health, relieves eye fatigue, and lowers blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
At present, China accounts for a significant share of shrimp imports on account of expanding middle-class population which has led to an increase in the overall domestic consumption.
