CA MAU (VNS)— The southernmost province of Ca Mau earned nearly US$60 million from seafood exports last month, a year-on-year increase of 16 per cent and a record for the last five years.

According to statistics, the province exported 35,000 tonnes of aquatic products in the first month this year - an increase of 3 per cent over the same period last year - and is on track to fulfill its target of shipping 380,000 tonnes overseas this year.

Local authorities expect aquaculture will help spearhead the province's economic development and are currently giving priorities to shrimp breeding, technology transfer and loans for farmers.-VNS
