Can Tho (VNA) – The Vietnam Pangasius Association launched a trading website and a farming e-map of Tra fish at a ceremony in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on July 27.

The website www.mekongfishmarket.com provides member sellers with utilities to support the promotion of their products, give price quotations, and streamline the management of their sales staff.

The simple, quick and free membership registration will provide seafood suppliers with quality certifications as well as market information, goods supply and demand, and consumption orientations for separate regions.

Meanwhile, the website www.pangasiusmap.com maintains a database and map on 200 Tra fish breeding areas belonging to businesses and households in Can Tho city and Dong Thap, Vinh Long, An Giang, Ben Tre and Tien Giang provinces, who have 1,104 breeding ponds covering 1,230 hectares.

Users can easily find information on the breeding area, the number of Tra fish businesses and households, and the forecast for harvest on this map.

The two websites are the products of a Swiss-funded project to enhance the export capacity for small- and medium-sized enterprises.

The launch of the websites opens up new information channels for trade activities and provides an easy trace for the origins of seafood to ensure the safety and transparency of the aquatic products.

Management agencies and counselors took the occasion to share experience on effective online business.

According to the national seafood development master plan until 2020, with a vision towards 2030, Vietnam will build six major fisheries development centres in Can Tho, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Khanh Hoa, Ba Ria – Vung Tau, and Kien Giang.-VNA
