The Vietnam Pangasius Association recently launched a couple of websites to support trading of tra fish by producers and exporters, and trace locations of tra farms in the Mekong Delta region.
The website www.mekongfishmarket.com provides sellers with utilities to help promote their products, give price quotations and streamline the management of their sales staff.
A free membership registration provides seafood suppliers with quality certifications, as well as market information, and data about supply, demand and consumption trends in different regions.
The second site, www.pangasiusmap.com, maintains a database and map of 200 tra fish breeding areas of businesses and households in Cần Thơ City and the provinces of Đồng Tháp, Vĩnh Long, An Giang and Bến Tre, besides Tiền Giang that have 1,104 breeding ponds covering 1,230 hectares.
Users can easily find information about breeding areas, the number of tra fish businesses and households, and harvest forecasts on this map.
