Indonesia escapes EU embargo on shrimp export.

Indonesia hopes to increase shrimp exports by at least 20% this year from 110,000 tons last year after it escaped an embargo threat by the European Union. The EU decided that Indonesia had improved it hygienic control after the Food and Veterinary Office visited the country to make direct examination of the production facilities used by fishery companies in the country. Chairman of the Shrimp Club Indonesia (SCI) Iwan Sutanto warned shrimp producers not to mix antibiotics with shrimp feed as the EU will continue to watch the process of production in the country. The EU has threatened embargo on Indonesian shrimp after founding too high antibiotics content in shrimp imported from the country.
