It is the first shrimp farm in the country to apply a non-use chemical-based antibiotic and water filtration recirculation system, said QNTek Joint-Stock Company’s technology director Tran Ba Cuong John.

He said garlic and other natural antibiotic agents were mixed into food to prevent the whiteleg shrimp from becoming infected.

Cuong said the farm also applied nano-tech in its water treatment process.

The project was designed to produce 9 tonnes of shrimp from each 1,000sq.m pool in the first stage of investment.

According to Quang Nam provincial People’s Committee, the project will act as an example of hi-tech aquaculture development before the practices are spread throughout the province.

Two investors – Truong Hai Joint Stock Company and Hoang Anh Gia Lai – have agreed to a joint-venture agroforestry project with an investment of 13.8 trillion VND (611 million USD) in the province.

The province has 857,628ha of protected forest and farm land – 82 percent of the province’s area – 115,000ha of which is reserved for agricultural production.

According to the latest report, the export value of agricultural, forestry and fishery products was estimated at about 40 billion USD in 2018.
