KON TUM — Many breeding stations in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum have been unused due to a lack of water supplies.
These stations, completed after four years of construction with Government funding of VND17 billion (US$816,000), aimed at supplying 1 million breeds, including young fish, per year to localities.
Representatives of stations said that due to a scarcity of water, only several of the 45 stations are working, while the rest are disused and covered with wild grass.
The provincial agriculture department said that dredging lake beds and using water resources from local lakes would help overcome the problem, but it will cost up to VND5 billion ($240,000). — VNS
