In its 21st edition this year, the three-day event, with the theme “Asia’s Home of Seafood”, features more than 340 booths of businesses from 15 countries and territories.

Vietfish 2019 is designed to connect producers in the fisheries sector with local and foreign firms, and provide a platform for businesses to learn and share their experience in the field. It is hoped to attract 17,000 visitors this year.
