Bac Lieu Expanding Whiteleg Shrimp Farming

31 March 2014

VIET NAM - So far this year, farmers in Bac Lieu province have stocked nearly 1,500 hectares of whiteleg shrimp under intensive and semi-intensive models.

Local shrimp farming area reported a sharp increase compared to the same period of last year thanks to higher shrimp price and demand as well as short farming time, reports VASEP.

The price of whiteleg shrimp count 80 – 100 pieces per kilogram is in the range of VND130,000 – 145,000 per kilogram. Increasing whiteleg shrimp production is expected to compensate for the shortage of raw black tiger shrimp for processors in the province.
