Vietnam’s fisheries sector has set a target of having 85,000 ha of marine aquaculture area this year with an estimated output of 850,000 tons, according to the Vietnam Directorate for Fisheries.

In order to further boost the development of the sector in the years to come, a number of policies are being created to attract investment and offer support, Head of the Vietnam Directorate for Fisheries Tran Dinh Luan told a recent seminar on cooperation between Vietnam and Norway in marine aquaculture.

The seminar aimed to create a platform for participants from the public and private sectors and academia to discuss ways for Vietnam to develop marine aquaculture in a sustainable manner and the role of relevant stakeholders in that process.
