Vinh Phuc (VNA) – The northern province of Vinh Phuc yielded over 16,500 tonnes of aquatic products in the first nine months of this year, up nearly 5 percent year-on-year. 

Of the figure, over 1,500 tonnes were caught, down nearly 2 percent, and the remaining were farmed, up over 5 percent annually.

Since the beginning of this year, the provincial agriculture sector has encouraged residents to expand intensive and semi-intensive aquaculture, develop large-scale concentrated production connectivity models, guide farming households on how to adopt VietGAP standards, and actively respond to natural disasters to mitigate losses./.
