Weekly summary of aquaculture news from Vietnam (October 5, 2020 – October 11, 2020)


Bac Lieu Province organized the Vietnam Shrimp Forum 2020 with the theme "Applying science and technology toward a sustainable development of the shrimp-rice farming model in the Mekong Delta".

The shrimp-rice farming model is a typical farming technique to adapt to seasonal saltwater intrusion in coastal provinces of the Mekong Delta. Saltwater intrusion often occurs from December to May every year. The rainy season is usually for rice farming to utilize the advantages of rainwater to wash salt and sweeten the field. In the remaining months, due to saltwater intrusion, rice fields become shrimp ponds. Shrimp is farmed using natural feeding and seeding methods.

In 2020, the total shrimp-rice farming area of provinces in ​​the Mekong Delta is estimated at more than 211,900 hectares. The model of salt-brackish shrimp-rice farming can be used to farm 2 crops, one shrimp crop and one rice crop. Shrimp-rice farming brings high economic efficiency, about VND60-70 million/hectare/year.
