HCM CITY (VNS) — The Mekong Delta targets reaching tra fish export turnover of US$2-$2.5 billion in 2016, according to a master plan for tra fish breeding and processing in the region.

Under the master plan, by 2016 the areas under tra fish breeding in the Mekong Delta will be less than 5,400ha, producing from 1.25 million to 1.3 million tonnes of tra fish.

By 2020, the areas under tra fish breeding will reach 7,600 to 7,800 ha, producing from 1.8 million to 1.9 million tonnes of tra fish.

By that time, 15 to 20 per cent of tra fish production will be processed to become value-added export products. The value-added processing will help raise the export turnover of the tra fish products from $2.6 billion to $3 billion.

The areas under tra fish breeding, estimated to be from 1,700 to 2,500 ha, are zoned for Mekong provinces of Dong Thap, An Giang, Hau Giang, Vinh Long, Tien Giang and Can Tho City. — VNS
