1 Economic Overview of the Northern Shrimp Industry / Portrait économique de l’industrie de la crevette nordique Economic Analysis and Statistics, Policy Sector / Analyses économiques et statistiques, Secteur des Politiques Northern Shrimp Advisory Committee Meeting – April 14, 2010 / Réunion du Comité consultatif de la crevette nordique, 14 avril 2010

2 Average Landed Price of Cooked and Peeled Shrimp (Inshore) Source: DFO Since 1997, the average landed price of cooked and peeled shrimp in all provinces has been declining. The sudden price increase in 2008 to over $1.10 per kg. was not maintained. The price in 2009 continued to fall to a level of approximately just over 90¢ per kg. 2

3 Revenues and Landings for Frozen Shell-on (Offshore) Source: DFO Continued low landings persisted in 2009 for the offshore fleet. These landings are about 60% less than in This was due in part to reduced capacity in the sector and resource decline. The preliminary data for 2009 that landings are remaining constant, but the value continues to fall. 3

4 Cooked and Peeled Shrimp Market Price* * Price in Canadian Source: Urner Barry The U.S. price for both sizes of shrimp have followed along the same trend since Again, a spike in prices was experienced in 2008/09, similar to the cooked and peeled shrimp in Canada during that same time period. However, it appears that prices have started to rebound at the beginning of Prices for the U.K. market have remained just below $7/kg in recent years 4

5 Landings and TAC by Fleet Source: DFO The chart presents how the TAC has steadily increased since In recent years it has started to level off at around 175,000 MT. In 2008, total shrimp landings fell by 12% from the previous year. Inshore landings increased, while the offshore landings reduced significantly. Preliminary 2009 data is indicating a further reduction in landings with the offshore sector remaining stable but landings from the inshore sector were down by almost 30%. 5

6 The Canadian Exports of Cooked and Peeled Shrimp Source: DFO and Statistics Canada The exports of Canadian cooked and peeled products has extended its downward trend from Both the quantity and value of exports have fallen by almost 40% since

7 The Canadian Exports of Frozen Shell-on Shrimp Source: DFO and Statistics Canada After a drop in both export value and quantity of frozen shrimp in 2008, preliminary data is indicating an increase for

8 Cooked and Peeled Shrimp Exports by Destination Source: DFO and Statistics Canada For the past several years over 50% of Canadian cooked and peeled shrimp was destined for the UK and Denmark. While preliminary data indicates that this still remains true, a visible reduction of exports to Denmark and the United States has occurred in 2009, since exports to all other countries have remained the same. 8

9 Frozen Shell-on Shrimp Exports by Destination Source: DFO and Statistics Canada Denmark has been a major market for Canadian frozen shrimp since However, this appears to be no longer the case. The exports of frozen product directly to Denmark fell by more than half since 2007, although some of this might reflect trans- shipments to Russia. The market in Russia has been increasing in recent years, Iceland and Norway have also become increasingly important buyers of Canadian frozen shrimp. 9

10 World Shrimp Landings Source: FAO Since 1998, the world landings of all shrimp and of Northwest Atlantic Northern shrimp have remained steady at approximately 3 million MT and 300,000 MT respectively. However, it is important to note that the capture landings for farmed shrimp worldwide has continued upward since In 2007 it surpassed the quantity of wild capture shrimp. 10

11 Canadian Gross Domestic Product* by Month * Chained 2002 Source: Statistics Canada Like other countries, the Canadian economy has been experiencing the effects of the global recession. The effects of such a contraction affects all Canadians, including the fishing industry. However, there are indications that domestic growth is gradually improving. As GDP has been increasing since the Fall of

12 Exchange Rates – USD, EUR, GBP & RUS Source: Bank of Canada Since both northern shrimp sectors rely heavily on exports, the exchange rates in the major markets are key top their success. It appears that the Canadian dollar has been either stable or increasing in value compared to other rates. It is unknown how long the Canadian dollar will remain high, but it is expected to persist over the short term. 12

13 World Price of Crude Oil Source: Energy Information Administration The price of world crude has doubled since this time last year. The impact of the price of fuel, in particular, concerns the shrimp industry, as it is a significant portion of fishing costs. Once again, making planning for the future a challenge. 13

14 The Outlook It is once again expected that the fishing industry will continue to experience many challenges for the upcoming year. The driver behind this uncertainty is that many factors, such as landings, exchange rates, the price of oil and the strength of the economy, determines the success of the industry and all of these remain somewhat volatile. 14
