Seven-month seafood turnover reaches USD 2.45 bln

Vietnam’s seafood export turnover for July was USD 430 million. This makes its 7-month export value USD 2.45 billion or 11.6 per cent higher than last year.

Shrimp exports in seven months sped ahead with a turnover of USD 717 million (a year-on-year rise of 22 per cent) with tra and basa fish exports next at USD 650 million showing a growth of 8.23 per cent, announced the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

The European Union (EU) is still Vietnam’s biggest export market for seafood with a value of USD 512 million with Japan next at USD 371.6 million.

Meanwhile, Vietnam exported over 20,000 tonnes of tra and basa to Russia in the first seven months of 2010, a growth of over 2,000 tonnes year-on-year. Duong Ngoc Minh, head of the tra catfish export management board to Russia, said the export target of USD 100 million set for 2010 may be reached, VNS reports.

Vietnam’s aquatic export turnover has burgeoned, however almost all export businesses have faced hardships as a result of a shortage of supplies and shrinkage of the spawning area of tra fish. Many large firms -- such as Hung Vuong, Vinh Hoan, Nam Viet, Agrifish and Minh Phu -- have had to inject investment capital into spawning areas to find additional sources of fish-breeding supplies, reports VOVNews.

Numerous seafood processing businesses in the Mekong River Delta region have been consequently forced to import materials. Still, these are merely temporary strategies because the global price of materials is going up as a result of high taxes, according to seafood experts.

Apart from materials, companies have struggled with other high input costs, such as those of high interest rates, electricity, water, salaries, transportation and packaging. Further, although the price of shrimp has risen, that of other kinds of products has fallen.

MARD Deputy Minister Luong Le Phuong said seafood processing businesses ought to boost trade promotion in new markets. Partaking in seafood trade fairs provides favourable opportunities to endorse Vietnam’s tra and basa fish industry and look for new partners in foreign markets.

The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Processors (VASEP) has proposed establishing a fund to ensure the quality and stabilise the prices of tra fish. The fund will be developed by gathering export fees from tra fish products at a rate of USD 0.05-USD 0.1 per kg and will be run by the tra fish processors and exporters’ Steering Committee for Tra Fish Production and Export.
