First PL Sales to Vietnam


Zhanjiang Haimao Aquatic Biological Technology (Haimao) has sold more than 10 billion postlarvae (PLs) in China, and on August 21, 2014, it began selling PLs to Vietnam with the delivery of 20 million to the Central Veterinary Drug Joint-Stock Company No. 1 (VINAVETCO), which will sell them through a sales network in Vietnam.


In China, Haimao reports slightly increasing PL sales in Guangdong and Guangxi provinces, its primary markets, and rapidly increasing sales in new markets in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Fujian provinces.


Haimao has 15 hatcheries scattering throughout China.  It imported 500 pairs of broodstock in late August 2014, and it plans to purchase 6 to 7 thousand pairs of broodstock from Singapore-based Shrimp Improvement Systems (SIS) in 2015, when PL sales could reach 12 billion PLs.
