Red alert has been rung over Vietnam’s shrimp products since Japanese authorities discovered prohibited anti-biotic substances in the seafood exported to the country.

 

In the past month, Japanese agencies have issued two instructions on dealing with Vietnam-sourced shrimp imports. At first, they ordered the examination of half of the total imports, and then they ordered the inspection of all imported consignments of shrimp.

 

If the situation cannot be improved, Japan may give the order to prohibit shrimp imports from Vietnam. This will be a big tragedy for Vietnamese seafood producers and exports, as Japan imports $500-600mil worth of products of Vietnam’s total shrimp export turnover of $1.2bil annually. Vietnamese enterprises have had to spend a lot of time and money to penetrate the Japanese market, and it would be a waste if they lost the market.

 

Ministry takes no action

 

The Ministry of Fisheries seems to be unruffled by the bad news. It has sent four dispatches to local departments of fisheries and departments of agriculture and rural development since August asking the agencies to keep stricter control of material supplies, and announcing its intention to take inspection tours of aquaculture ponds to eliminate unsafe seafood materials. However, analysts said that the dispatches have not been enough to improve the situation.

 

In fact, the volume of unsafe seafood has not been decreasing as expected. In the dispatch dated October 24, the Ministry of Fisheries reported that prohibited chemical substances and antibiotic substances were still being used in several workshops that make products for export.

 

Tran Van Linh, Director of Da Nang-based Thuan Phuoc Seafood and Trading Company, said that the ministry just did the bare minimum by issuing the instructions; it did not take any measures to prevent unsafe products. In fact, no violators have been punished.

 

“The ministry should take action. It has to strengthen its management work,” Mr Linh said.

 

Nafiqaved’s measure facing opposition

 

The National Fisheries Quality Assuarance and Veterinary Directorate (NAFIQAVED) has suggested a solution to the current problem: All consignments of shrimp to be exported to Japan must be examined by Nafiqaved, which will grant a certificate of meeting export standards.

 

However, the proposal has been facing strong opposition from businesses. Seaprimexco’s Director Bui Nguyen Khanh said that in August and September alone the company had to spend roughly VND300mil to get certificates from Nafiqaved.

 

The problem lies in the fact that Nafiqaved certificates are not recognised by the importers. In fact, the two consignments of shrimp exported to Japan that were discovered to contain prohibited anti-biotic substances had been awarded Nafiqaved certificates. The reality is that the examination results announced by Japanese authorities are often at variance with the results announced by Nafiqaved.

 

Vietnamese shrimp exporters have sent a dispatch to the Minister of Fisheries asking for a removal of the instruction to inspect all consignments of shrimp to be exported to Japan, which they believe will hinder exports and weaken the competitiveness of Vietnam-sourced products.
