This is the third successive year that the shipment of the fish has been fluctuating around the US$-1.7-billion- mark.

According to the VASEP, tra fish export began recovering since June and has been rising throughout the rest of the year in such markets as Southeast Asia, Mexico and China.

In 2014, the Mekong Delta has reserved 5,500 ha for farming tra fish, which turned out 1.1 million tons in output.

Vietnamese tra fish products have been shipped to 150 countries and territories around the world.
