Kien Giang

The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang will develop sea aquaculture, focusing on breeding fish in floating cages and bivalve mollusc farming effectively and safely, thereby contributing to enhancing agricultural economic growth in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The province is determined to install equipment according to regulations, ensuring that all active fishing boats must install cruise monitoring equipment (VMS) when going to sea.
