Lobster Farming in Khánh Hòa Province

 

The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO) have begun a two-year program to improve the quality of vocational training in Vietnamese aquaculture.

 

The program will be piloted in Đồng Tháp Province in the Mekong Delta, home of Vietnam’s pangasius farming industry, and Khánh Hòa Province on the country’s central coast, where lobsters are farmed.

 

Spiny lobster farming in sea cages was first developed in Khánh Hòa Province in 1992 and has since expanded to 35,000 lobster cages in just over a decade.  The industry is said to be worth $100 million, with main markets in China and Taiwan.
