|During the last months, shrimp’s price in Phu Yen continued dropping. The price of 100 shrimps/kg dropped from over 60,000 VND/kg to 44,000 VND/kg.
While the expenditure for the investment is still high, shrimps’ price drops sharply. Thus, though the productivity is quite good, farmers do not have high profit. In the area of farming shrimp in the lower section of Ban Thach River (Dong Hoa district), about 90% households have low profit, about 10-20 million VND/ha, 10% household do not have profit or even suffer loss because shrimps are sick and grow slowly.
