During the Boston exhibition, UCN sources said that the South American hurricane Yaku caused heavy rainstorm in western Ecuador and Peru, causing serious floods and landslides and affecting the harvest of Ecuadorian white shrimp. Another source said, "Ecuador has been raining for several weeks, and the harvest of shrimp farms has been delayed. The heavy rain has affected the quality of shrimp and caused many problems. The harvest in some areas is very poor, and the water level is abnormal, forcing the shrimp harvest plan to be delayed or canceled."
Does the hurricane affect the price of Ecuadorian white shrimp? Several sources agree that it is too early to judge the future price trend based on the current situation, and the Chinese market is the main driving factor. Given the recent high volatility of shrimp prices in Ecuador, industry insiders are also unable to accurately predict.
