  2. 2. HISTORY<br />Till 1960: Dried items like dried fish and dried shrimp.  <br />By 1961: Frozen items overtook dried items leading to a steady progress in export earnings (Technology/modernization came in).<br />1966: export of frozen and canned items registered a significant rise (Devaluation of Indian currency).<br />Markets for Indian products also spread fast to developed countries from the traditional buyers in neighboring countries.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. MARKET STRUCTURE<br />Till 1960: Sri Lanka, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Singapore etc. <br />By 1961: Japan, USA, Europe, Australia, etc.<br />Seafood processing units with modern machinery for freezing and production of value added products were set up at all important centers in the country for export processing.<br />Till 1976: USA was the principal buyer of frozen shrimp <br />3<br />
  4. 4. MARKET STRUCTURE<br />After 1977: Japan emerged as the principal buyer of the product, followed by the West European countries.  <br />Till 2002: Japan retained its position as the single largest buyer for our marine products accounting for about 31% in the total export value.   <br />2002-03 & 2003-04: USA emerged as the single largest market for our marine products.  <br />2004-05 & 2005-06: European Union collectively became the largest importer of Indian marine products.<br />4<br />
  5. 5. MARKET STRUCTURE<br />2008-09: <br />European Union (EU) = 32.6% <br />China 14.8%<br />Japan 14.6%<br />USA 11.9%<br />South East Asia 10%<br />Middle East 5.5%<br />Other Countries 10.6%<br />Due to prevailing economic recession export to EU, USA and Japan declined 6.08%, 10.18% and 8.80% respectively<br />All other countries increased their import of marine products from India during the year.<br />5<br />

  76. 76. Air-Fresh Seafood<br /><ul><li>Sturdy Boxes: Wetlocks are still the standard, but other specialty boxes are available
  77. 77. Use 4-Mil Poly Liners: Airlines hate leakers…so will your customers
  78. 78. “Wet” Ice: Don’t use regular ice. It melts & creates a huge mess
  79. 79. Chill Before Packing: Make sure the fish is 32°F – or a bit less – before it goes into the boxes
  80. 80. Gel Ice: Must be hard frozen & leak free / Use 2 X 1.5 lb gel packs per 50 lb box & 4 X 1.5 gel packs per 80 lb box / Put gel packs on both top and bottom of box
  81. 81. Insulation: Really helps maintain the chill / Highly advised during warmer months</li></ul>64<br />
  82. 82. Effect of Insulation & Gel Packs<br />50 lbs Chilled Fish / Time to Reach 40°F<br />Fish Pre-Chilled to 32°F / Ambient air temperature of 60°F<br />65<br />
  83. 83. Planning Your Air Shipment<br /><ul><li>Choosing a carrier
  84. 84. Service to destination – direct flights, minimum connections, timing, etc.
  85. 85. Experienced staff / general reputation
  86. 86. Adequate chilling facilities enroute, etc.
  87. 87. Is your shipment “priority”, or can it be bumped for mail or passenger baggage
  88. 88. Insurance
  89. 89. Basic insurance is minimal
  90. 90. Declared value protects against loss / Full value insurance is usually quite expensive / Loss to customer is uninsurable
  91. 91. Claims take months to settle</li></ul>66<br />
  92. 92. Planning Your Air Shipment<br /><ul><li>Documentation
  93. 93. Anything other than the Air Waybill is your responsibility
  94. 94. Correct documentation is particularly critical on international shipments
  95. 95. Are you a known shipper?</li></ul>67<br />
  96. 96. Use a Freight Forwarder<br /><ul><li>They know the system
  97. 97. They negotiate the best rates & schedules
  98. 98. They monitor shipments
  99. 99. They get more respect from the airlines than you ever will
  100. 100. In short - “They are pros”</li></ul>68<br />
  101. 101. Shipping Frozen<br /><ul><li>Sturdy Insulated Boxes: Really a must with frozen shipments. Full “styros” with well fitted corrugated “outer” is best
  102. 102. Deep Freeze Before Packing: Make sure the fish is as cold as possible – minimum -5°F / -22°F (-30°C) is better
  103. 103. Gel Ice: Use lots! Must also be deep frozen & leak free
  104. 104. Dry Ice: Can be very good…but pricey. Shippers have limits on how much you can use, so check in advance
  105. 105. “KEEP FROZEN” Labeling: Use lots of labels!
  106. 106. Freezers Enroute: Verify that freezers are available at every stop and point of plane change. Make sure they are adequate to take your shipment if need be.</li></ul>69<br />
  107. 107. Shipping by Truck<br /><ul><li>What Species?: “Sturdy” fish like halibut stand up well in trucking, but lots of fresh salmon gets trucked too
  108. 108. Reliable: Unlike aircraft, “refer” trucks have reliable temperature control systems for either chilled or frozen freight
  109. 109. Speed: Can be surprisingly competitive with air depending on destination & when all stops, and potential delays are considered
  110. 110. Check with your Forwarder: Trucking may be right for you.</li></ul>70<br />
  111. 111. Challenges<br />Impose of Anti-dumping duty by US in 2004.<br />Japan and EU imposed strict quality control standards on Indian Marine Products.<br />Indian Exports are Single Product (Shrimp) and Single Market (USA and Japan) oriented Industry.<br />Diesel accounts for 75% of Input cost, escalating diesel prices i.e. from Rs 5 in 1991 to Rs. 40 present is major challenge to overcome.<br />71<br />
  112. 112.
