Farmers in the Mekong Delta are scrambling to increase catfish output as a massive supply shortage despite skyrocketing prices sees processors working at half capacity.

 

Tra and basa catfish prices have been rising since 2006 with Phan Van Danh, chairman of the An Giang Aquatic Produce Breeding and Processing Association, saying they had reached a record VND17,000 per kilogram, an increase of 40-50 per cent compared to the same period last year.

 

But despite this, seafood processors are snapping up all available supplies, even of immature fish, as they face a severe shortage of raw materials.

 

In An Giang Province, 10 seafood processing plants have been working at just 50-60 per cent of capacity while several plants have allowed their workers to leave for the Tet holiday three or four days early.

 

Catfish farmers have been earning an average profit of VND5,000 per kilogram, and are happy to expand output. Many have bought land to dig fish ponds, sending land prices spiralling to double that of the last few years.

 

Danh said the area under catfish farms in the Mekong Delta was increasing dramatically. The Viet Nam Association of Seafood Processors and Exporters forecast the output of tra and basa catfish to reach one million tonnes this year, a 25 per cent increase over last year.

 

However, Nguyen Dinh Huan, Agifish An Giang Company’s deputy director general, has warned that this unplanned expansion can cause severe environmental pollution.

 

He urged local authorities to immediately build water supply systems to provide fresh, safe water for catfish farming.
