HCM City leads the way for aquatic exports over the opening five months of the year with turnover reaching $356.5 million, making up approximately 11 percent of the country’s total seafood exports.

According to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), Vietnam raked in roughly $3.3 billion from exporting aquatic products, representing a rise of 14 percent compared to the same period from last year.

High-export turnover has been recorded in numerous Mekong Delta provinces due to their abundant sources of raw materials.

VASEP data show a total of 13 Mekong Delta provinces grossed nearly $2 billion, accounting for 60 percent of the country’s total, while six provinces in the southeast region earned $602 million, making up 18%.

At present, HCM City is leading in terms of national seafood exports with $356.5 million, followed by Soc Trang with $346.5 million, and Ca Mau with $315.2 million.

Dong Thap topped the list of pangasius exporters, earning $271 million, or 8 percent of the national exports.
