Bangladesh to boost black tiger shrimp export to US


To boost sagging sales, the Bangladeshi government will take the country's black tiger shrimp to where the world's top seafood buyers will gather early next month: the Seafood Expo North America (SENA).


A delegation led by Senior Commerce Secretary Hedayetullah Al Mamoon will visit SENA, North America's largest seafood trade exposition catering to seafood buyers in every market category including retail, restaurant, catering, food service and processing, which will be held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Boston, USA, on March 6-8, hoping to   attract buyers in order to increase export.


Despite its succulent taste, demand for black tigers in the US has decreased while that for the lower-priced vannamei shrimp has increased.


Bangladesh will have a booth where exporters could display shrimps to attract buyers.


It will also meet with the National Fisheries Institute (NFI), the largest organisation dealing with shrimp export in hopes of increasing export to the American market.
