Viet­nam shrimp ex­ports show sharp rise

Fish Farmer - - World News -

VIET­NAM’S shrimp ex­ports in the first half of this year rose by 15.7 per cent year-onyear to US$0.56 bil­lion, thanks to de­clin­ing sup­ply sources from other shrimp ex­port­ing coun­tries.

Of the to­tal, white legged shrimp made up $955 mil­lion, a rise of 20.4 per cent, while black tiger shrimp fell by 5.3 per cent to $421 mil­lion, the Viet­nam As­so­ci­a­tion of Seafood Ex­porters and Pro­duc­ers (VASEP) re­ported. The coun­try’s shrimp ex­ports rose sharply in the sec­ond quar­ter, al­though they de­clined in the first quar­ter due to a short­age of raw ma­te­ri­als in the do­mes­tic mar­ket.
