The fishery association of An Giang and enterprises have decided tra fish will cost 12,000 dong a kilogram, effectively controlling tra prices.
The fish farming and aquatic product processing association of the Mekong Delta province and fish farms decided unanimously at a recent function held at An Giang to control tra fish prices.
An Giang–based exporters will charge US$3.00–3.20 a kilogram of fish fillet.
Currently the fish fillet costs US$3.40 a kilogram, but orders are few because worldwide importers can turn to other fish due to the approaching harvest time of US mudfish.
According to aquatic product processing enterprises there, 12,000 dong for a kilogram of the first–class fish is reasonable and will give fish farmers a profit of some 3,000 dong a kilogram.
