In late October 2013, shrimp farms in the state of Andhra Pradesh were pelted with six days of heavy rain, affecting 30,000 acres of ponds.   As temperatures and salinity levels dropped in the ponds, mortalities rose.  Devisetti Suribab, who has 25 acres of shrimp ponds, said, “We were expecting very good yields this year, but the rains played havoc on shrimp culture this time, and we are going to lose almost 50 percent of the crop.
