Somsak Paneetatyasai, president of the Thai Shrimp Association, said export volume is expected to remain at 350,000 tonnes next year.Overall shrimp production is projected at 540,000 tonnes this year, down 10% from 600,000 tonnes in 2011, due to diseases known as early mortality syndrome and white spot syndrome.

Exports have also declined by 10% this year.
