Technical and scientific progresses have been transferred to fry breeding facilities in many provinces and brought remarkable achievements in aquaculture.

The fisheries industry has succeeded in applying advanced technologies to select and produce the broodstock of pangasius, tilapia, oyster, the black tiger shrimp with high resistance to disease and rapid growth, upgraded seed production technology and traditional fish farming techniques such as big-head, mud carp, black or grass carp, common carp, red tilapia and snakehead.

The sector also gives researches on seed’s biological traits and announces seed production technologies for some new species which have high economic value and ability of genetic resources conservation such as giant barb, goonch, Asian redtail catfish, sea cucumber, snout otter clam, abalone, corrugate lucine, mantis shrimp, cuttle fish.

The sector initially creates seed breeding technology to farm commercially some high economic value species like rainbow trout, Sibiria sturgeon, milkfish bony salmon, Pacific oyster and contributes to introducing salmon and sturgeon farming in Vietnam.

The sector focuses on solutions to manage water resource and environment to prevent germs and limit spreading epidemic in fish farming and build waste treatment systems in farming ponds and seafood processing facilities. Scientific and technical advances enable the seafood sector to create kinds of suitable aquatic feed for some traditional species and key species like pangasius, tilapia, red snapper, the giant freshwater prawn,  pariwinkle snail and black carp.

In term of fishing and capturing, the sector studied and applied Remote Sensing Technology (RS) to forecast fish stocks in fishing grounds to catch more effectively. RS technology is considered a scientific database to assess fish stock changes, predict fish stock in waters to control wild catching and production activities in seafood processing plants. Besides, modern technology application helps to ensure post-harvest fish processing and preservation on Vietnam fishing fleets in compliance with the technical standards and suitable preserving methods of different species such as ocean tuna, cuttle fish, markerel, tuna.

Thanks to the application of advanced technologies, some equipments serving for fishing vessels are designed and manufactured. Experts in the sector believe that the above achievements contribute to building some seafood producing localities which are consistent with social-economic conditions and local production habits with an aim to meet targets of seafood development strategy by 2020.
