Aquatic export surges in January.

In the domestic market, prices of Tra fish materials in the Mekong Delta region remained at high levels, ranging between VND27,000 and VND29,000 per kg due to supply shortage. The situation is unlikely to change soon, as export is brisk while supply sources expand only marginally. 

The prices of shrimp are projected to follow an upward trend compare to the last month of 2017 thanks to increases in consumer and factory’s materials demand.

The US, Japan, China, and the Republic of Korea were top four importers of Vietnamese aquatic products last year, together accounting for 55% of the country’s total fishery exports.
