As per fluctuations in the domestic market, February saw the price of material tra fish fall by VND1,000 (43 US cents) to VND28,000-28,500. This was caused by the increased supply following the Tet (Lunar New Year) holidays, while tra fish orders remained at a low level across the reviewed period.
Meanwhile, the price of live sugpo shrimps continued to go up in the domestic market since local consumption, as in previous years, consistently shifted from animal flesh to seafood, including shrimp products, after the Tet holidays.
