|In southern Dong Thap province, during ten days, the white meat material pangasius price reaches VND15,500 per kilogram, down by VND500 to VND800.
Although the price is lower, most of enterprises buy fish for the old price because their transaction was carried out on old contracts and few businesses sign new contracts.
In An Giang Province, the output of Pangsius material is reduced continuously in March, reaching 75% compared to the same period last year. The raising area covers about 1.000ha, now down by about 30% compared to the same period last year.
According to the forecasting of local people, there will be the lack of material Pangasius source in coming time because of imbalance between raising area and businesses’ demand.
