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.
