The southern central province of Binh Dinh will develop a logistics and processing centre for tuna exported to Japan at Quy Nhon port, the provincial people's committee said.

The province produces between 180,000 and 200,000 tonnes of fish per year, including 10,000 tonnes of tuna. However, most of the tuna is processed and exported as cheap fillets.

In August, fishermen from the province exported the first-ever batch of 10 whole tuna to the Osaka central wholesale market.-VNA
