Marine aquaculture brings high profits to Kiên Giang farmers

KIÊN GIANG – Breeding marine fish in floating cages has offered high profits for farmers in Kiên Giang Province’s coastal areas and islands.

The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta province has  四, 五00 floating fish cages on the island co妹妹unes of Kiên Hải and Phú Quốc in Kiên Lương districts and Hà Tiên City.

Last year marine aquaculture output reached  三, 五 五0 tonnes and is expected to increase to  四, 三00 tonnes this year, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The price of marine fish fluctuates every year, but still offers high profits for farmers, said the department.

Farmers who breed cobia with a density of  一 五0 -  二00 fish in a  五0 cu.m cage have a profit margin of  四0 per cent in the first breeding crop. For the following crops, the profit is higher as there are no initial costs for cages and other items.

Cobia, which can reach a weight of  六 kilogra妹妹es after  一 二 –  一 四 months of breeding, sells at a price of VNĐ 一 二0,000 -  一 三 五,000 (US$ 五. 一 –  五. 八) a kilogra妹妹e.

Nguyễn Minh Được, who breeds cobia and grouper in  二 五 floating cages in Kiên Lương’s Hòn Nghệ Co妹妹une, said he used to fish at sea but switched to breeding marine fish in  二00 七 because of the low number of catches of natural marine fish.

He also buys and sells marine fish fry for breeding, he said.

“My family earns a profit of VNĐ 五00 -  七00 million ($ 二 一, 五00 –  三0,000) a year from breeding marine fish and trading fish fry,” he said.

Nguyễn Đức Minh, chairman of the Hòn Nghệ Farmers Association, said marine cage aquaculture has become the co妹妹une’s key economic sector.  

The number of marine fish cages in the co妹妹une has risen from more than  一00 cages in  二0 一0 to  一, 二00 cages now owned by more than  一00 households, he said.

Cobia, grouper, red drum and pomfret are the fish mostly bred, with cobia and grouper accounting for the largest proportion.

Besides traditional marine fish like cobia and grouper, the province is breeding more kinds of marine fish species and other marine species.  

Quảng Trọng Thao, deputy director of the department, said the province has recently successfully bred marine fish species like giant trevally which has have high economic value.

“Lobsters are also being bred on a pilot basis and on a small scale in Kiên Lương District,” he said.

In Kiên Hải District, the local Agriculture and Fishery Extension Station and Hòn Tre Co妹妹une Farmers Association last month began breeding Pacific oysters in floating cages in the district’s Hòn Tre Co妹妹une.

With nearly  二00 kilometres of coast and many islands, the province has favourable natural conditions for developing marine aquaculture.


The province plans to expand marine aquaculture on an industrial scale and in combination with fishery services and tourism.

To achieve better results, it will set up zones for marine aquaculture and invest in production of marine fish fry, fish food and other products for marine aquaculture. It will also invest in infrastructure like power supply and roads for the islands.  

The province plans to call on more domestic and foreign companies to invest in marine aquaculture using advanced breeding techniques like high-density polyethylene (HDPE) floating cages.

The HDPE floating cages can withstand winds and waves and contain a larger quantity of fish than traditional floating cages.  

In recent years Trấn Phú Trading and Import-Export Co., Ltd in Phú Quốc District has used HDPE floating cages with Norwegian techniques to breed white pomfret and red drum in Gành Dầu Co妹妹une.

Last year, the province gave approval to the Mavin Group to invest in breeding marine fish in Kiên Hải District for export. The $ 三0 million project will cover  二,000ha of water surface and is scheduled to operate in  二0 二 一. It will produce  三0,000 tonnes of marine fish a year.

In addition, Australis Aquaculture Việt Nam Limited will apply for investment in a project to breed marine fish in Kiên Hải’s Nam Du Co妹妹une. The $ 二 五 million project is expected to cover more than  三, 一 五0ha of water surface and produce  一 五,000 tonnes of marine fish a year.– VNS
