Promoting sustainable Vietnamese aquaculture


Ensuring sustainable aquaculture production is a key challenge for global seafood food safety and security. Aquaculture production must expand meaningfully over the next decade to satisfy the growing market demand for fishery products. Europe imports nearly 70% of aquatic products for consumption; which mainly comes from Southeast Asia – the world’s largest production region. Therefore, both regions share a great interest in developing sustainable solutions, especially related to technological innovation, resource efficiency, environmental impact reduction, harmonization of standards and markets. school.
The objective of EURASTiP is to evaluate and prepare for the launch of an Eurasian Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Forum, an international Multi-Stakeholder Forum (MSP). The MSP will also provide a new mechanism to create and strengthen international cooperation on sustainable aquaculture between Europe and Southeast Asia. Participants from both regions will focus on activities that will provide mutual benefits to stakeholders in the aquaculture value chain, education, research and policy development.
According to Dr. Dinh The Nhan, Lecturer at the University of Agriculture and Forestry in Ho Chi Minh City, the VINATiP Forum held is not outside that goal. Therefore, it is very necessary to build a vision, main goals, orientation and development plan for the Forum in the coming time.

In addition, at the Forum, the delegates focused on discussing, developing and perfecting 4 topics, including: Research and training: Promoting research and technological innovation and training quality human resources for the sustainable development of both socio-economic and environmental aspects of Vietnam’s aquaculture; Brands and markets: Ensure most Vietnamese seafood products are branded on the basis of meeting high quality, nutritious, healthy, safe and recognizable standards because consumers in these markets are increasingly expanding at home and abroad; Standards and certification: Develop quality standards that meet consumer expectations for nutritious, healthy, and safe seafood products, establish a transparent and reliable management framework for the assessment and certification promotes good aquaculture practices; Improve institutions and policies: Ensure solid, transparent and equal mechanisms and policies to promote multi-stakeholder contributions to the development of aquaculture in a safe and sustainable direction.
Dr. Tran Dinh Luan, Deputy Director General of the Directorate of Fisheries, said: “2017 is a successful year for the entire agriculture sector in general and fisheries in particular. Vietnam’s seafood export turnover reached more than USD 8.3 billion, up 19% over the same period last year, what is more special is that this is a year where Vietnamese seafood has both a good harvest and a good price. However, with the export target of 9 billion USD in 2018 that the Government has set, difficulties and challenges still exist. Accordingly, many solutions are needed for the industry to develop sustainably and effectively.”
