Mangrove Shrimp Farming, SNV and Quoc Viet

   

SNV Vietnam, a non-profit development organization that works to overcome poverty, is pleased to announce that an agreement has been signed with the shrimp processing company Quoc Viet, also one of Vietnam’s largest shrimp farmers, to support sustainable, integrated mangrove-shrimp farming and mangrove conservation in southern Vietnam.

 

SNV’s Mangroves and Markets (MAM) project works with small-scale shrimp farmers in coastal areas of Ca Mau Province to enhance the sustainability of the aquaculture sector and improve access to organic certification.

 

Quoc Viet will pay farmers in the project area an additional $0.13 per kilo for their certified shrimp, along with an additional payment for each hectare of mangrove forest that they manage, to create financial incentives for sustainable shrimp production and mangrove restoration.

 

SNV will provide financial and technical assistance to the small-scale shrimp farmers.
