Ecological shrimp farming is popular in mangrove forests in Nam Can and Ngoc Hien districts.
Ca Mau is home to approximate 80,000 hectares of mangrove forests, which are ideal for raising shrimp.
The farming method, which started in the province in 2000, has helped raise locals’ incomes and protect the environment.
Cau Mau is the country’s largest seafood exporter, accounting for 16% of the total value. The province also makes up 30% of the country’s total shrimp export value.
