On 3rd January 2014, VASEP held a conference on Vietnam Shrimp Exports 2013 in Ho Chi Minh City with the speakers from Directorate of Fisheries, VASEP and My Thanh Shrimp Association and representatives from shrimp processors and exporters.

Shrimp exports of Vietnam would hit USD3.5 billion in 2014 if EMS continues to be under control.

In 2013, shrimp exports brought high earnings for the fishery. Through November 2013, shrimp exports created USD2.8 billion, up 35.9 percent over 2012 and are expected to reach over US$3 billion for the whole year. Shrimp sales made up 44 percent of the total seafood exports of the country.

Whiteleg shrimp is playing more and more important role in global shrimp supply, thus in 2014 Vietnam increases vannamei production. Black tiger shrimp is still main species farmed in the country. Diseases and available good shrimp seed supply are challenges of shrimp sector in 2014.
