Viet Nam Increasing Catfish Exports to India

04 October 2013

VIET NAM - Viet Nam's tra (catfish) exports to India are rising as the fish becomes more popular.

According the General Department of Customs, Viet Nam's tra fish exports to India hit US$7.69 million in 2012, up 32 per cent, reports VNS.

Over the past eight months, the figure reached $7.67 million, compared to $5.903 million in the same period last year.

The Viet Nam Association of Seafood Exporters and Processors (VASEP) said that India wants to learn from Viet Nam's experience in raising tra fish output, as it has a plan to become one of the world's five leading seafood producers.
