Depletion of geragau shrimp forcing a halt in Melaka belacan production

MELAKA (Bernama): Belacan, or prawn paste, is an important ingredient in many dishes, so much so that without it, the taste would not be the same.

The fear now is that the production of prawn paste, especially in Melaka, which is well-known, including in Singapore and Brunei, will come to a halt due to the depletion of the geragau shrimp, which is used to make the paste.
