News 04/01/2018 - Nguyễn Trí Tín
The Mekong Delta province of Long An plans to increase its aquatic farming area by 200 hectares to approximately 9,200 hectares and expects to produce 52,550 tonnes of aquatic products this year, reports VNA. To achieve this end, the province will tighten management on commercial aquatic farming and announce a list of freshwater aquatic species included in the province’s policies to support the development of local aquaculture in Dong Thap Muoi (Plain of Reeds) region.
It also will improve electricity supply networks for aquaculture, dredge irrigation systems and apply a set of standards on aquatic breeding businesses to control the quality of breeding.
In addition, the province seeks to intensify management on water environment by monitoring the water quality on the regular basis and make recommendations for water treatment if necessary.
Most of the aquatic farming areas in Long An are located in Can Duoc, Can Giuoc, Tan Tru, Tan Thanh and Thanh Hoa districts. The province cultivated about 9,000 hectares last year.
