Saudi Arabia - The new potential buyer of Vietnam tuna

Posted date: 11/01/2017
Fishermen of the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang have caught nearly 80,000 tonnes of seafood since the start of the year, a rise of 2.2 percent year-on-year.

The figure represented 80 percent of the province’s plan of catching 98,000 tonnes of seafood this year.

Local authorities have encouraged local fishermen to build new, high-capacity vessels, to prepare modern equipment and to raise their efficiency.

Tien Giang boasts a coastline of 32 kilometres and holds great potential for the fishery sector.
