High antidumping tax rates imposed by the US have made several businesses limit the fish export to this market.
Despite of a reduction in volume, average export price increased nearly 4 percent.
The US is the second largest importer of Vietnamese tra fish after the EU, accounting for 18.7 percent of the total export turnover.
