A group of Dutch companies will participate in a three-year initiatiative which seeks to improve the development of the shrimp farming sector in Vietnam and secure sustainable investments.

A collaboration projetc, called ‘ShrimpTechVietnam’, was signed by the Marjolijn Sonnema, Director-General Agriculture of the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and a consortium of Dutch companies and a knowledge institute, which see a specific opportunity in the shrimp sector in Vietnam and feel that jointly they can best contribute to the local private sector development.

Dutch and vietnamese representatives

Vietnam is the world’s 2nd largest exporter of shrimp. According to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), the Netherlands is the 2nd largest importer of Vietnamese shrimp within the EU.

The Asian country is the leading producer of black tiger shrimp in the world with a production of 300,000 tons per year. However, due to the rapid development of the shrimp cultivation sector, many issues have occurred as well, including a high incidence of diseases, due to a combination of intensive farming practices without proper water treatment, land management and water filtration.

At the root of all the problems lies the current way of unsustainable and damaging high intensive shrimp farming practices.

According to Larive International, one of the project partners,the cluster aims to contribute to the improvement of the local business climate and the development of the shrimp farming sector in Vietnam, increased trade and investment in the sector and showcase proven solutions.

The members of the group will work together on the following activities in Vietnam:

1. Develop the value chain: stimulate the development of the shrimp aquaculture sector.
2. Demonstrate best practice: test, validate and demonstrate effective farming techniques.
3. Transfer expertise: best practices, protocols and training programs.
                                

Sponsors and partners

The project partners include: 

  • Topsy Baits, the biggest producer of live bait maturation feed for aquaculture industries.
  • Shrimpvet, an expert company in diagnostic services, health status of shrimp, grow-out, broodstock and monitoring services.
  • TipTopp Aquaculture B.V. , which has extensive experience in designing, engineering and maintaining sustainable ecological shrimp cultivation techniques while increasing the productivity.

  • Larive International and Openasia (Vietnam) will take on the role of general project management (both local and international) and be the liaison between the parties as well as the Dutch Government.
