Tridge summary

In 2023, Vietnam maintained its brackish water shrimp farming area at 737,000 hectares, producing 1.12 million tons of shrimp, despite a 19.8% drop in export turnover to $3.45 billion. The country, heavily dependent on imported broodstock for 87% of its shrimp seed production, is making strides to boost domestic supply, with Ninh Thuan province emerging as a key player by supplying 35-40% of national demand and producing 40 billion shrimp seeds. Efforts are underway to enhance shrimp seed production quality and capacity, aiming for significant self-sufficiency in shrimp broodstock by 2030, with a focus on disease safety and control to support the industry's growth and sustainability.
