finals coniderations:
except some logistics problems, the championship was held without big problems improving in quality and quantity of shrimps. the quality of the present shrimp was good when compared with that of other european contest held in the same year, but were not presented new intersting shrimps. the large presence of asiatic prl in excellent quality was superior to any other contest held in 2013. The presence of a greater number of participants and the interest shown by fans and media (press/ national and regional tv) is a proof that we are going in the right direction , therefore we will strive to improve even more .

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 .

final considerations:

even though we had some organizational problems, the championship was held without any major hitches. the overall quality of  shrimps was about average when compared with that of other european contest held in the same year and din't show novelties. must be stressed that the quality of red bee grade ss-sss in competition due to the high percentage of pure red line was higher than all the other contest held in 2012. the lack of participants was mainly caused by two factors:

- in the same days there was another important contest in Austria

- participants could bring only animalswhich were born from shrimps breeded by at least a year in his own tank (european shrimps contest 2012 was the first championship with this rule)

the contest have had a really good echo around the wolrd, specially in asia and we hope next edition will be much better.
