VIET NAM - A festival to celebrate aquaculture and seafood production in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces will take place in Can Tho next month.

To Minh Gioi, deputy chairman of the municipal People’s Committee told a press conference on March 28 that Can Tho Seafood Festival 2010 will be held from April 24-27 with the participation of many provinces and cities, reports VOV News.

“The festival will be a great opportunity for aquaculture farmers, fishermen and around 400-500 seafood businesses in the country and abroad to meet and exchange views and information,” he said.

The event also aims to highlight the vast aquaculture and fisheries potential in the delta with its millions of waterways.

Key activities in the festival include conferences on improving seafood quality for export markets, policies for sustainable development of the seafood sector, and legal corridors for seafood exports, a trade promotion, a contest for the biggest shrimp and catfish, and a food festival featuring delta specialties.
