VTV.vn - Since the beginning of the year, shrimp farmers in the Mekong Delta have encountered difficulties due to slow sales.

To tackle this issue, on Sunday, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development organized a conference, with the attendance of representatives from 6 provinces, to discuss sustainable shrimp farming. According to Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers, Vietnam's shrimp industry has been affected by the 15% increase in global shrimp supply, due to increased production in Thailand, India, Ecuador and other countries. Meanwhile, demand has only risen by 5%, leading to a reduction in the price of material shrimp fell. However, the price is expected to rise again in August and September, when harvest season in other countries is expected to end.
