Sustainable shrimp farming in the Mekong Delta!
We want to end the current irresponsible and destructive farming methods that dominate the shrimp industry in Vietnam. Together with various local and international partners, like ASC and WWF Vietnam, we are committed to creating an alternative: responsible, environmentally friendly farmed shrimp. By working together, we can make the shrimp sector more sustainable.
Scattered across the Mekong Delta, various farmers work sustainably on small patches of land. They farm shrimp in a responsible and small-scale way. Because these farmers often operate independently, they don’t have the means to qualify for recognition of international labels such as the ASC certificate, which is the worldwide standard for sustainable fish farming. It is difficult for these farmers to gain access to new markets. As a result, they miss out on income and recognition for their beautiful product.
