The price of tiger shrimp has come down to Rs. 60 a kg, leaving the farmers in the lurch. There are 8,000 farmers breeding tiger shrimp in 20,000 acres in Krishna and Guntur districts. But the importers of shrimp are rejecting their produce, leading them to losses. They said that the demand has come down by half. Until recently tiger shrimps were sold at Rs. 300 a kg.
