The Viet Nam-Australia Seafood Company has begun work on a project to use advanced technology to raise shrimp in the central province of Binh Dinh. The technology helps to reduce risks while increasing output and cutting production costs.

The company said the VND800 billion (US$36 million) would employ poly-greenhouses, recirculating-aquaculture systems and biofloc technology from Israel, the US and the Netherlands.

The shrimp farm covers 300 hectares in My Thanh commune in Phu My District.

The project is expected to yield between 100 and 300 tonnes per hectare annually. It is estimated that the farm could produce 2,900 tonnes in 2017 and 9,600 tonnes in 2018.
