VIET NAM - Thng Thu?n Group started the construction of a high-tech shrimp breeding centre in the southern Tr Vinh Provinces Tr??ng Long Ha Commune on Saturday.

Viet Nam News reports that the centre, which is being built at a cost of VN?95 billion (US$4.2 million), will be located on a 10.2-hectare plot and will have the capacity to produce 5.5 billion units of white-leg shrimp, tiger prawn and blue-claw shrimp varieties.

This is the first high-tech shrimp breeding centre in the province, which is expected to help households engaged in shrimp farming in sea waters and blackish waters.

Nguy?n Xuân C??ng, minister of agriculture and rural development, hailed the province’s efforts in bringing in private investment for the centre, creating favourable conditions for agricultural restructuring and for exploiting the aquaculture potential efficiently.

He urged the investor to complete construction and start operations at the centre as per schedule, while taking care not to harm the environment.

The centre is expected to produce its first batch of high-quality shrimps in October this year.
