India Putting the Jumbo in Shrimp

This is Episode 72 of The Pragati Podcast hosted by Pavan Srinath.

India is one of the largest producers of frozen shrimp in the world, and may take the top spot from China in 2018 or 2019. Industrialist and shrimp exporter Aditya Dash talks to Pavan Srinath and Anupam Manur on aquaculture, the seafood industry and trade disputes on Episode 72 of The Pragati Podcast.

Aditya Dash is an alumnus of the Takshashila Institution’s Graduate Certificate in Public Policy (GCPP). Applications are open for the January 2019 intake. Learn more at https://takshashila.org.in/courses/

Episode 72 includes discussions on how shrimp is farmed, what it takes for shrimp to get from the farm to the restaurant table, and how well India is doing in aquaculture today. The episode explores the potential for sustainable job creation that India desperately needs, and explains how trade disputes can get in the way of a successful seafood industry in India. Environmental sustainability, health regulations and labour challenges of aquaculture are examined, and guest Aditya Dash shares his reform wishlist for governments.
