Soc Trang Province—New Canals to Improve Water Quality


In the Mekong Delta, Soc Trang Province, one of the largest producers of farmed shrimp in the country, will invest $37.6 million in a system of canals to increase the water quality at shrimp farms.  The canals will provide water to 2,000 hectares of shrimp farms in the Tran De District, 1,500 hectares in Cu Lao District and 8,000 hectares in Vinh Chau District.  Over the past three years, large shrimp areas in Soc Trang have been infested with diseases, partly because of poor water quality.
