A multi-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by the Bangladesh Shrimp and Fish Foundation (BSFF) and Hendrix Genetics to share knowledge for the development of black tiger shrimp production in Bangladesh.
October 9, 2019
The agreement benefits the shrimp industry in Bangladesh and the main importer of black tiger shrimp, the European market. By sharing expertise and innovative technology, the goal of the agreement is to enhance quality, availability and sustainability of black tiger shrimp products. Bangladesh's famous black tiger shrimp is in high demand because it is highly sustainable and it is near organic production.
This agreement was signed during a meeting of representatives from government, businesses, academia and a high level visiting delegation from Bangladesh. The seminar was titled “Shrimp Technology: How Bangladesh can be benefitted through cutting-edge Dutch technology”. A number of Dutch experts, including Dr. Robbert Blonk from Hendrix Genetics BV, presented their findings on shrimp manufacturing technology, feed nutrition and genetics. The objective of the seminar was to promote the shrimp sector of Bangladesh through adopting sustainable aquaculture practices as well as marketing of Bangladeshi shrimp products in the Dutch markets.
The black tiger shrimp industry has great potential for growth in the European market. Bangladesh is well positioned with its growing economic power and geo-strategic location.
