The Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau is expanding all its efficient agriculture, fishery and forestry models.
The southernmost province of Ca Mau is striving to achieve its goal of earning US$1.1 billion from exporting aquatic products this year.
VOV.VN - With favourable climatic conditions endowed by nature, Ca Mau has led the Mekong Delta provinces in shrimp production. Currently, nearly 300,000ha in the province are dedicated to shrimp production, with a turnover of nearly 150,000 tons and an export value of nearly US$1 billion.
