Abstract or Summary
  • Thailand is the biggest shrimp producer in the world. Thai shrimp from aquaculture reached 280,000 tons in 2001, which accounted for about 33% of the total global shrimp aquaculture production. Detection of residues of banned chemicals in shrimp imported to Europe from Asia starting from 2002 was perceived as a biased stricture by the shrimp exporters, and many of the shrimp exporting countries had considered the measures as a sort of food-scandal. Containers of shrimp were destroyed when banned chemicals were detected and, therefore, Thailand and other shrimp producing countries are under tremendous pressure to follow European food-safety regulations. This paper reviews social, economic and environmental aspects of Thai shrimp farming, and provides background information of the Thai shrimp industry. Moreover, impacts of EU ban on shrimp imports from Thailand have been extensively analyzed based on the views of various sources such as media, press and peer-review papers from both Thai and EU sides. Impacts analysis has revealed that the ban has caused shrimp prices falling in Thailand and created image problem for Thai shrimps. It has triggered introspection among the stakeholders. Consequently, the Thai Government has implemented an action plan on food safety and has declared 2004 as "The Food Safety Year".
