Mekong Delta province targets 980 million USD from tra fish exports

The Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap expects to earn over 980 million USD from tra fish exports by 2025, according to a provincial development plan.

The locality’s total tra fish farming area is set to reach 2,450 hectares in the next three years with an output of 555,000 tonnes worth some 9.04 trillion VND (384.43 million USD).

Huynh Minh Tuan, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said tra fish farms in Dong Thap are expected to have their identification codes digitalised by 2025 for safe production, with 90% of household tra fish farms joining production chains.

Tra fish is one of the six sectors in Dong Thap’s agricultural restructuring scheme. Currently, more than 60% of tra fish farms in the locality are implementing a closed process, from incubation to breeding, processing and export.

Dong Thap’s tra fish products are exported to 134 countries worldwide, including Asia, the Middle East, China, Europe and the US./.
