The time from now until the end of the year is advantageous for businesses to boost seafood exports because consumption demand has highly increased in the world.
At present, export price of tra fish fillets to the Asian market has inched up US$2.5-2.6 a kilogram. Therefore, tra fish price has also increased from VND23,500-24,000 in the Mekong Delta, a profitable rate for farmers.
Tiger prawn prices have gone up in Ca Mau, Bac Lieu and Soc Trang Provinces. A kilogram (20 shrimps) is paid VND285,000-290,000 and VND220,000 to 30 ones.
Provincial departments of aquiculture and rural development in the delta said that tra fish and shrimp prices have rebounded back after a long fall and farmers have resumed tra fish breeding.
