Indonesia is on average unable to meet up to 30 per cent of the shrimp export orders it receives due to shortages in supply from its shrimp breeding community, state news agency Antara reported, quoting an industry spokesman said.

"We have a problem with domestic shrimp cultivation so that we as exporters often face supply shortages," Shidiq Moeslim, chairman of the Indonesian National Fisheries Society, said on Tuesday.

There was a shortage of raw fish supplies so that the country was now facing a problem with its fishery export target in 2009. Shidiq said shrimp exports accounted for 45 per cent or about 10 trillion rupiah ($1.03 billion) of total fishery exports, which reached $2.6 billion per annum.

It was estimated that about 3 trillion rupiah worth of shrimp export deals failed to be carried out in 2009.
