The Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu has undertaken a number of efforts to boost aquaculture for export.

The provincial People’s Committee is urging relevant bodies to work with localities to zone off specific areas for prawn breeding and processing.

The province has also facilitated access to preferential loans for local enterprises in the sector.

Publicity campaigns have been conducted by the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to enhance awareness and knowledge of shrimp cultivation among farmers.

Over the past seven months, more than 26,000 tonnes of shrimp have been shipped abroad, bringing home 273.5 million USD, up 0.49 percent from the same period last year.-VNA
