final considerations:

despite the presence of two other contest in the same period, delay or failure delivery of shrimps set and logistical problems, the championship was held without big problems . the luck of some big breeders and special guest (due to family reasons) was heard, but there was an increase of small farmers that has partially compensate this lack, the quality of the present shrimp was similar when compared with the main other european contest held in the same year. it is also provided for the modification of the categories in the competition to improve the judgment of animals in competition. the championship as happened in the past years has attracted much interest from the public and media .
