Getting closer to shrimp farmers

VietShrimp 2024 was held in Cà Mau Province, the southernmost part of the country, with the aim of getting closer to shrimp farmers. In Cà Mau, VietShrimp continued to realize the desire of shrimp farmers to directly dialogue with managers, industry experts; to directly meet with enterprises, grasp the latest technologies, and products in the shrimp industry.

According to provincial statistics, in 2023, the shrimp farming area in Cà Mau was about 278,000 hectares, with a production reaching 231,000 tons, and export turnover exceeding 1 billion USD; accounting for 40% of the area, 22% of production, and nearly 30% of the export value of shrimp nationwide. Holding VietShrimp in Cà Mau was a very appropriate decision by the Organizing Committee, especially while the shrimp industry has been facing many difficulties.

Though not as large as in previous years, VietShrimp 2024 was still considered a successful event. Lê Văn Sử, Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee of Cà Mau Province, shared: VietShrimp 2024 in Cà Mau Province, with the theme “In company with shrimp farmers,” is a significant event, not only promoting the image and brand of Vietnamese shrimp but also providing an opportunity for parties to exchange, update advanced technology and science; expand the market; and discuss measures to deal with shortages in the shrimp industry. Then, plans for sustainable development, environmental protection, value enhancement, and competitiveness in the international market can be formulated.


After being held for the fourth time every two years, VietShrimp 2024 received high attention. From the initial direction of bringing technology to shrimp ponds, the exhibition has always been on the right track. Booths showcased new technologies. For example, the 3-good shrimp farming model by Uni-President Vietnam; new feed products by Skretting, Grobest; microbial products by Vinhthinh Biostadt, Viet Anh, Green Science.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Phùng Đức Tiến stated: Vietnamese agricultural products are present in over 200 countries and territories, especially seafood products in nearly 170 countries, of which shrimp products have penetrated over 100 markets. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has approved the organization of VietShrimp annually from 2024 onwards.

Scientific Workshop

In his speech at the opening ceremony, Nguyễn Việt Thắng, Chairman of the Vietnam Fisheries Association and Head of the VietShrimp Organizing Committee, emphasized: The seafood and shrimp industries faced difficulties last year, and there will be challenges this year but also changes. To overcome these challenges, the government has directed relevant agencies to take action, most importantly accompanying shrimp farmers.

With the desire to be a large forum for 4 entities: State – Science – Business – Farmers to jointly find solutions to develop the shrimp industry effectively and sustainably, the Organizing Committee carefully prepared and held successful seminars.

More than 40 presentations by domestic and international experts were delivered continuously on March 20th – 21st, 2024, opening up many new ideas; at the same time, answering questions in the domestic shrimp industry; along with successful experiences from shrimp farming countries for Vietnam to learn … Trần Đình Luân, Director of the Department of Fisheries, shared that “the scientific solutions and practices that the shrimp industry is applying, all aim to improve quality, food safety, reduce emissions, protect the environment, and sustainable development.”
