Cold weather affects Vietnam’s shrimp production

(15:27 - 06/03/2014)(View: 274)

Cold weather in southern Vietnam has affected thousands of hectares of shrimp production, as farmers have to delay their new season of cultivation. 

“The unfavourable weather has led to diseases and slower shrimp growth,” Pham Minh Tuyen, Deputy Director of Tra Vinh Agriculture Department told Asian Agribiz. He said 25% of the province’s shrimp farms have been affected by the bad weather, which makes shrimp susceptible to the white spot virus. The government has urged farmers to delay the start of their farming to minimize the effects. Tra Vinh plans to cultivate 1.6 billion black tiger shrimp and 2.1 billion white leg shrimp, targeting nearly 28,000 tonnes. Vietnam exported more than USD 3 billion worth of shrimp in 2013.
