Viet Nam's Live Black Tiger Shrimp Return to Chinese Market

6 January 2014, at 12:00am

VIET NAM - Viet Nams live black tiger shrimp has been allowed to enter the Chinese market again after the ban set by the market since October 2012.

Viet Nam’s relevant authorities will guide and inspect consignments of live black tiger shrimp and live fish products exported to China under a new Health Certificate (HC).

Under the new HC, seafood exporters to China must provide full information on farms (names, location and codes if available) or names of districts and provinces where fish were caught, reports VASEP.

Under China’s requirement, other live farmed fish exported to the market must be sourced from farms which have been granted codes.
