|In the recent 2 weeks, the price of material black tiger shrimp in Mekong Delta has been running up very fast. The price of black tiger shrimp bought at the ponds in Ca Mau and Bac Lieu is 110,000 – 115,000 VND per kg (type: 30 items per kg) and 85,000 – 95,000 VND per kg (type: 40 items per kg).
The price of type 20 items per kg reaches 150,000 VND per kg.
The price of exported shrimp increases by 1 USD while the price of material black tiger shrimp is 25% - 35% higher than 2008.
This is due to the fact that processing aquaculture factories raise the price to keep their sources.
Although the price of material black tiger shrimp is higher, farmers do not have enough shrimp to sell because it is not the right farming season now.
