Ca Mau Province Producing Its Own Broodstock


Thao Nguyen Aquatic Seed Company is the first company in Ca Mau Province, which has over 800 shrimp hatcheries, to produce Penaeus vannamei broodstock.


In just over two months, it produced more than 30 million postlarvae.  Despite being a key area for shrimp farming, Ca Mau only produces one-third of its requirement for shrimp seedstock.


Thao Nguyen Aquatic Seed Company has the capacity to produce 150 million P. monodon and 200 P. vannamei postlarvae annually, which fulfills only 40% of the demand for vannamei postlarvae.
