Khanh Hoa steps up application of advanced technologies in marine aquaculture

Khanh Hoa (VNA) – The south central province of Khanh Hoa will increase the use of advanced technologies in marine aquaculture in the next five years, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Farmers would also be encouraged to adopt advanced techniques for farming lobsters, seabass, grouper, cobia, and yellow pomfret, it added.

During a meeting with province authorities last week, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong said Khanh Hoa has strengths in the three main pillars of fisheries, namely offshore fishing, large – scale marine aquaculture and seafood processing.

Lobster is one of the province’s key products and is bred mostly in Van Ninh district, Ninh Hoa town and Nha Trang and Cam Ranh cities. Marine fish is mostly bred in bays and lagoons.
