Ca Mau strives to earn 1.1 billion USD from aquatic export this year
November 22, 2017, 08:44 AM
The southernmost province of Ca Mau is striving to achieve its goal of earning 1.1 billion USD from exporting aquatic products this year.

As of mid-November, the figure neared 900 million USD, up 8.5 percent annually, a positive signal as the shrimp sector faces a tough global market.

Chau Cong Bang, Vice Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, attributed the growth to rising materials supply that meets nearly 60 percent of total output of shrimp processing for export.

The province’s industrial shrimp farming area now covers more than 9,600ha. Thanks to technological adoption, shrimp production accounts for 80 – 100 tonnes per ha each crop, raising the total to roughly 150,000 tonnes since the beginning of this year.

Local authorities are working to promote sustainable shrimp farming by spreading intensive farming models in tandem with environmental protection, closely controlling quality, issuing regulations to improve the management of shrimp farming, waste treatment and breeding shrimp quarantine.

Concerned agencies have also paid attention to technical training and epidemic control.
