Viet-Uc, Vietnam

One of the best known growth stories in Vietnamese aquaculture is shrimp producing company Viet-Uc. The business, run by entrepreneur Van Thanh Luong, has set up the world’s largest shrimp hatchery producing 15 billion of postlarvae annually.

Applying hatchery management principles – controlling conditions from start to finish – to the nursery and grow-out stages, Viet-Uc is investing in large-scale intensive farming capacity. Covered and aerated ponds combined with on-site water treatment and waste management make it possible to bring all environmental aspects under control.

Adopting game-changing technologies in feed formulation such as complete fishmeal replacement, Viet-Uc is a pioneer and innovator in the field of sustainable shrimp production.
