Besides, a project on hi-tech shrimp farming in glasshouse is being implemented by the Viet Uc – Phu My Ltd company on a total area of more than 116ha in My Thanh high-tech agricultural zone. The company plans to start raising shrimp in March with a total output of 8,400 tonnes per year.

Meanwhile, five businesses applied for shrimp farming in Phu Cat district.
