The shortage of king and tiger prawns has been caused by a disease which has affected prawn farms in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and China. Importers are therefore competing for supplies from countries unaffected by the disease, including India, Bangladesh and Ecuador, causing prices to rocket. Oliver is hoping to secure a new source of prawns so that he can restore the 12.50 prawn linguine dish to menus at the chains 33 outlets in the UK. Until recently, his Italian chain bought 992lb (450kg) of these warm water prawns a week. A spokeswoman for Jamie Oliver said: Weve taken prawns off the menu at Jamies Italian. Were still able to buy in smaller quantities for the individual restaurants Barbecoa and Fifteen but, because of the high volume needed for Jamies Italian, we have taken them off the menu as availability across the market has dropped and of course prices are fluctuating. The disease, called early mortality syndrome, has hit prawn production for the past two years but has been particularly bad this year in Thailand. The average chicken nuggets is only HALF meat.. and the rest is fat, bone and nerve endings Supply there is expected to slump by 50 per cent. It affects newly stocked ponds and leads to widespread losses. The restaurant chain was using 990lb (450kg) of the seafood item every week and will be badly affected by struggling stocks (file picture) Jonathan Adams, spokesman for the National Federation of Fishmongers, said: Prawn prices have been rising steadily for some months and in the past few weeks they have gone up 25 to 30 per cent. A British Retail Consortium spokesman said supermarkets are moving suppliers to avoid higher prices in shops. Supplies of cold-water prawns from the Atlantic, which tend to be used for prawn sandwiches and in salads, are not affected.
