Accordingly, the first project is estimated to cost VND300 million (US$15,000) and will produce breeding tra fish in the Global Gap standard, at Vinh Long aquatic breeding farm.
The second is to join the Vinh Long Agriculture Seed Center’s project, which will hand the technology to produce high quality tra fish breeds over to provinces in the delta.
Global Gap is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards for the certification of production processes of agricultural (including aquaculture) products around the globe.
