    Hey Guys

    It's not like we're making anything on these. If you saw what we pay for them then i guess you'd understand. Maybe I must change my supplier!!! Anyhow, I'm reducing the prices and giving 20% off on all Shrimps - I don't want to upset you all.

    Regards

    Rayhaan

    I've noticed a steady rise in shrimp prices over the last year at multiple lfs's.

    More difficult to come by or just supply and demand (from suppliers not lfs)?

    Maybe its to do with the strength of the rand vs dollar?

    Its a bunch of things. Rand / Dollar for one hasnt been great, freighting is also become more and more difficult with less airlines accepting live cargo during certain busy periods of the year and logistics. For example, Yellow Tangs are cheaper in Hawaii as that is were they are found, but if you purchase them from a wholsaler in Singapore or Sri Lanka the price is inflated, which ultimately leads to a higher price to the end consumer.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for explaining the whole thing. It is a combination of the weak Rand/Strong Dollar, Higher transportation costs & an increase in overseas supplier prices. We do our best to keep the costs down as I think you'll see from some of our other prices.Sometimes we have no choice and just have to pay what they want just to get the stuff here!!!

    Thanks again
