Tra Fish Farming to Become More Sustainable
2014-01-22 11:13:16 copyfrom：thefishsite hits:
Pham Anh Tuan, deputy general director of the Viet Nam Directorate of Fisheries, said that Viet Nam will establish an exemplary farming model and a training centre under an EU-funded project on a sustainable Pangasius supply chain (SUPA).
SUPA representatives said the project will help almost all enterprises in the Tra fish production chain develop new products and modern technologies, establish business links, operate an online forum to share information, and promote transparency relating to the origin of products in a bid to achieve sustainable targets.
SUPA was launched in April 2013 in the Mekong River Delta which is Viet Nam’s largest Tra fish producer. It aims to benefit at least 70 per cent of Tra fish producers and processors and 30 per cent of feed producers.
Viet Nam currently provides more than 90 per cent of the world’s Tra fish export output and hundreds of local people in the Mekong River Delta region live off Tra fish farming and processing. It earns a staggering $1.8 billion from exporting this fish every year.
