According to the Vietnam News Agency, snakehead farmers in Tra Vinh province were excited as the price of commercial snakehead fish had been stable at a high level, ranging from 38,000 to 42,000 VND/kg. The fish were healthy, resulting in a favorable yield due to scientific farming model, accompanied by appropriate nutrition solutions of GREENFEED Aqua Feed.
At that time, grade 1 commercial snakehead fish (0.8 – 1 kg/fish) was purchased by traders for 40,000 – 42,000 VND/kg (directly from farm), up by 13,000 to 15,000 VND/kg compared to the same period in previous years. With this selling price, breeders achieved a stable net profit, reconfirming snakefish farming to be an important livelihood for the economic development of the province.
Ms. Thanh, Head of Cang Long Cooperative (Cang Long district) had 5 snakehead fish ponds with an area of 6,000 m2, producing 100 tons of fish/crop, harvesting time from 6 to 6.5 months, depending on market demand.

Mr. Tien (Phuong Thanh commune), who worked as a local social worker. Interested in the snakehead fish farming model of many people in the region, he also decided to invest in a pond specializing in raising snakehead fish with an area of more than 500 m2. Mr. Tien chose PANAFEED aqua feed due to the formulae’s capability to deliver appropriate nutrition to each specific growth stage of the fish, which ultimately optimizes the farm overall efficiency. After about 6 months of stocking and feeding with aqua feed product by GREENFEED, from his pond, Mr. Tien harvested 9 tons of fish.
