Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam has 620 industrial aquatic processing facilities, according to the Directorate of Fisheries at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Of them, 415 have met standards for exports to Japan, the US, Europe and other markets.

In addition, there are some 3,000 small-scale establishments at traditional trade villages.

Aqua product processing has become a spearhead sector which boasts a large production volume and takes the lead in international integration, said the Directorate.

Vietnamese aqua products have made their appearance in 176 markets across the globe.

Furthermore, local processors are striving to boost domestic production and consumption as exports are hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vietnam earned 790 million USD from exporting aquatic products in May, lifting the total figure in the first five months of this year to nearly 3.3 billion USD, a year-on-year rise of 14 percent./.
