Vietnam is now dominating the world market for white fish fillets, as the country’s rising aquaculture industry now includes 45 tra fish facilities that account for 95% of the world market. Another 18 fish farms are in process.
The fish farms, certified to international standards assuring transparency of origin, quality and food safety, exported 153,000 tonnes of tra fish in the first quarter of this year for $376 million in revenue — up 5% in quantity and 22% in value.
Tra fish are now available in 136 markets worldwide.
