Brought to you by Andhra Medi-Pharm India. Producers from Chitin to Glucosamine in all forms
Find below article on trawling ban that will commence from June in India . It will start form the souther coast Kerala where monsoon begin and will be in effect on other coasts of india namely Western and eastern coast as monsoon progresses.
Majority of chitin production is from shrimps that are from sea catch… reduction in availability of chitin will drive the prices higher of Glucosamine. ALso most of the drying of chitin is done in solar energy…rains will also effect drying of limited chitin that is produces from shrimp shells form Aqua culture .
I see prices increasing steady because of monsoon season till mid september in India …also demand form USA has been rising ..i expect price of Glu HCL to reach USD 12 /kg in months to come
