Abstract or Summary
  • Vietnam fisheries industry is expanding in scale and increasing its position in the national economy. It supplies not only a basic food commodity, but also the input for other industries, source of nutrition, employment, income, and foreign exchange earnings. The importance of fisheries, hence, emanates from its contribution to the economy to the social and physical environment. Beside the advantages, however, in the developing process, the fisheries industry also expresses some unbalances and potential conflicts among the objectives on fish supply and demand. Therefore, the main objective of this paper is to display these unbalances and conflicts related to the fast growth of the sector and increasing in domestic and export consumption. First, the difference in growth rate between fishing and aquaculture is important. Second, the different development levels in each region might make it difficult to use the territory advantages. Third, when fish production increases, overfishing and environmental impacts also rise. Fourth, we have not fully planned for using of territory to aquaculture in long-run period so the material supply for fish processing companies are not ensured. For some species, the supply is higher than the demand while others imported from other countries. Moreover, the potential conflicts between domestic market and exporting are enlarging because of the high profits and large quantities, most fishery enterprises investigate on international markets. Consequently, the quality and quantity of aquatic products in home market are not appropriately considered: the high quality products are exported for a high price whereas the quality of the seafood used by domestic consumers is low and to a low price.
