Green technology shrimp farming project - Sustainable environment, expanding market

In the SSC, aquaculture and seafood processing is a key economic sector of the country, with an average of 4 billion USD/year, including shrimp industry. The green technology shrimp farming model helps the market to expand, and the environment is sustainable, which is receiving a strong response.

The shrimp industry has high economic value, but the consumption market is still limited and precarious because raw shrimp products have not met the safety standards of chemicals and antibiotics for export demand.

Besides, the investment in shrimp farming also has many potential risks, especially the problem of pond environment. The environment of people’s ponds is increasingly polluted, diseases are easy to spread and difficult to control. Clean shrimp farming solutions for sustainable environment were introduced and received many positive responses from shrimp farmers in DBCSL

Invest in clean shrimp farming models – shrimp farming according to green technology

The brackish water shrimp farming of Soc Trang province in particular and many localities in the Mekong Delta in general has continuously improved in the direction of quality and safety. Thanks to boldly investing in new farming models such as intensive farming, super-intensive farming, shrimp-rice, shrimp-forest, etc., over the years, the shrimp farming industry in the region has greatly improved in output and quality. Besides the new breakthrough in the shrimp farming industry, the rapid development of the above models risks polluting the environment and spreading pathogens if there is no thorough waste treatment solution.

In order to deal with the risk of pollution and epidemics getting out of control, the local fisheries sector has promoted the propaganda of good management of environmental factors in the process of aquaculture development with the support of local authorities. International organizations.

In addition, shrimp farming follows a closed circulation system, using microbial products for environmental protection instead of chemicals and antibiotics during the farming process. This is also a clean and safe method of shrimp farming, bringing high economic efficiency and sustainability. One of the typical examples is the model of ecological shrimp farming under the forest canopy in Bac Lieu province.

Deputy Head of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (Agriculture and Rural Development) in Dong Hai district, Bac Lieu district, Mr. Ho Thanh Tuan said:Recently, the district Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has coordinated with companies and enterprises to build brands as well as international certificates to increase the value of shrimp so that farmers can sell high-priced products. And especially the clean ecological shrimp farming model to meet export demand“.

In fact, for many years, two provinces with thriving shrimp farming – Soc Trang and Bac Lieu – have well applied technical methods to raise clean and safe shrimp. When GIZ deploys Green technology shrimp farming project – Positive solutions to prevent diseases arising in farming areas, which have not been well and timely handled the water environment, because the farming area expands too hot and too fast, but the previous technical methods are still limited. The clean shrimp farming model and green technology shrimp farming also create a premise for the non-use of antibiotics and chemicals in shrimp farming. Shrimp farming will meet the high demand for quality agricultural products in order to expand the consumption market.

Before 2020, the production areas north of National Highway 1A of Bac Lieu province, including the districts of Hong Dan, Phuoc Long and Gia Rai town, are still alum soils. And each year people only produce 1 rice crop waiting for rain. By bringing shrimp to live together on rice land, the combined shrimp-rice production model not only helps farmers change their lives, but also opens up sustainable production directions for two local economic strengths: exporting organic shrimp and clean, quality rice grains.

Director of Bac Lieu Agricultural Extension Center, Mr. Huynh Quoc Khoi said: “Currently, the province has expanded the area of ​​shrimp and rice to over 30,000 hectares. Orientation to 2025 to expand to about 43,000ha. Nearly all rice shrimp production is likely to be giant freshwater prawns. So we also recommend that people strengthen science and technology to expand the giant freshwater shrimp.”

Bac Lieu province will continue to invest in improving transport and irrigation infrastructure to help stabilize water sources to ensure the efficiency of the rice-shrimp farming model, in addition to supporting the initial cost of converting from black tiger shrimp to shrimp. greener. In order to replicate effective, environmentally friendly production models and adapt to the process of climate change, it is also contributing to the implementation of the Government’s policy and major orientation towards sustainable development of agricultural areas. the center of the Mekong Delta.

Effective cooperation – Green technology shrimp farming project

Environmentally friendly farming and production is an inevitable development trend of sustainable agriculture. With the support of the German Development Cooperation (GIZ), farmers in the Mekong Delta are starting to switch to shrimp farming according to green technology, promising to exploit sustainable efficiency for the leading economic strength of the country. region.

Different from the previous type of industrial shrimp farming with water circulation, the green technology shrimp farming model has a process of bringing water from the pond to the biogas bag before releasing the waste canal system in the square. The new water is then returned to the pond for reuse. The advantage of this model is that the possibility of contaminated water from wastes and residues in the farming process almost does not occur.

Agriculture and Fishery Cooperative 14/10 is one of the profitable units made from clean shrimp farming. According to Mr. Ngo Cong Luan, director of the agricultural and fishery cooperative on October 14 in Hoa Tu 2 commune, My Xuyen district, Soc Trang province, the abuse of chemicals and antibiotics in shrimp farming is a double-edged sword that only brings benefits first. eyes but with long-term environmental consequences. Say no to antibiotics, clean shrimp farming is first and foremost to protect yourself, by reducing costs and sustaining efficiency.

For many years, the unit has continuously achieved high economic efficiency thanks to compliance with strict principles in environmental protection of ponds. On an area of ​​​​nearly 30 hectares of water surface for shrimp farming, the cooperative provides the market with about 50 tons of commercial shrimp every year, earning billions of dong a year in net profit.

According to GIZ senior technical expert, Mr. Ngo Tien Chuong said: “The basic investment is to change the farming system that all people can use. But we also don’t set the index too high so that only businesses can do it. Our vision is based on the principles of sustainability, both environmental and economic. Targeting small-scale farmers like this so that farmers can ensure their lives, as well as minimize their losses.

Not only the current 14-10 Agriculture and Fisheries Cooperative, GIZ also deploys the project at 6 points in 3 provinces: Soc Trang, Bac Lieu and Ca Mau. In addition to supporting part of the cost, the project also supports technical training as well as summarizing, piloting, and organizing seminars to share experiences and replicate. The total capital for the project is about 100,000 Euro, equivalent to about 2.5 billion VND.
