The U.S. was the fourth largest importer of local seafood exporters after the U.K, Germany and Japan. The province’s shrimp exports to the U.S. market reported rapid growth.
Through August 2013, the province’s shrimp exports of the province reached US$11.8 million, in which exports of frozen whiteleg shrimp increased to US$7.956 million, expanding more US$4.18 million than that of the same period of 2012 (US$3.78 million).
