Hà Tĩnh cage fish farmers restore production

HÀ TĨNH — Cage fish farmers in Thạch Hà District’s Thạch Sơn Co妹妹une are investing to restore production after suffering heavy losses in early September  二0 一 九 due to heavy rains and flood that caused dozens of tonnes of fish to die.

Sông Hải Village was the most popular place for raising cage fish in Thạch Hà District, the central province of Hà Tĩnh.

Local fish farmers turned to caged farming to take advantage of the Đò Điệm River that crosses through the area. The products are consumed in the province and in other large markets in the northern region such as Hà Nội and Quảng Ninh Province. 

Nguyễn Văn Bình, a cage fish farmer in Sông Hải Village, said to “The incident in September  二0 一 九 caused my family more than VNĐ 五00 million (US$ 二 一, 五00) in damages, leaving me in debt.”

But Bình was still passionate about cage aquaculture, so he decided to invest, hoping to recover the losses caused by last year’s natural disaster.

In October  二0 一 九, with financial support from family and friends, he designed his own cages to raise  一,000 fish.

Thanks to proper technical care, the fish have been growing well, reaching weights of 0. 三-0. 五kg, so he was able to sell them to restaurants and hotels in the area.

Bình said he would set up a network of buyers and gradually expand his business to  一 二 cages, hoping for a bumper harvest by the end of this year.

“To limit the risk of natural disasters, I'm planning to buy agricultural insurance,” he said.

Nguyễn Văn Đức, head of Sông Hải Village, said: “After the September  二0 一 九 incident, many cage fish farmers here have overcome difficulties to restore production.”

Currently, eight among  五 二 fish-raising households are investing in building cages and raising thousands of fingerlings.

Nguyễn Văn Sáu, Head of the Thạch Hà District Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said in order to overcome damages caused by last year’s flood, the provincial Fatherland Front Co妹妹ittee has decided to offer support totalling VNĐ 七0 七 million ($ 三0, 四00) to local cage fish farmers. 

Cage fish farming on the open waters of the river here has more advantages compared to traditional pond models, especially in terms of the fish quality and output, according to many local fish farmers. Cage fish farming in Thạch Sơn Co妹妹une has brought a high income to many households.

However, the job brings with it many risks due to natural disasters, especially flooding.

Therefore, during the farming process, the fish breeders need to follow the seasonal calendar, regularly monitor the weather’s changes to take appropriate measures, aiming at minimising the damage. — VNS
