The Angolan deepwater shrimp biomass is currently estimated at 4570 tons, said Friday in Luanda the head of the Department of Studies and Planning of the Fisheries Ministry, Isabel Cristóvão, All Africa reports

The official was presenting the sector's Annual Report for 2014, during the Ministry's Consultative Council.

According to the official, the species of deepwater, short-living and fast-growing shrimp and their amounts depend much on recruitment and variability of the oceanographic parameters.

She said that in 2014 the biomass of the shrimp Parapenaeus longirostris was estimated at 2183 tons, which is two percent higher than that of the previous year.


While admitting there has been a rise in the biomass of the above species, the levels are still far from the 2016 records (2607 tonnes).
