Abstract or Summary
  • This study focuses on the benefit distribution among stakeholders in the value chain to evaluate the current status of white-leg shrimp in Khanh Hoa Province, Vietnam.Convenient sampling and face to face interview method were employed to solicit information from 100 farms, 10 middlemen and a group of exporters. Most of the farms are small size independent ones. There is an involvement of middlemen (middlemen type #1 and middlemen type # 2) in the chain. The distribution of shrimp materials by middlemen type #1 is based on shrimp size. If the size is within the range of 70 to 120 shrimps/kilogram, the middlemen type #1 distribute all to middlemen type #2 (18.9%); if the size is in the range of 120 to 200 shrimps per kilogram, they distribute to large hotels and supermarkets (22.6%); if the size is above 160 shrimps per kilogram, retailers are allocated 58.5%. Middlemen, type #2, possess a large amount of capital to supply middlemen type # 1 to cover operational expenses and to pay small farmers before harvest. The more capital middlemen type #2 have in hand, the higher their returns due to the level of guaranteed, consistent quality supply they receive. In order to grow shrimp and to attain a sustainable value chain for white-leg shrimp in a long run, there is a need to improve coordination among the market participants, between authorities and individuals; seek government intervention and build the image of Vietnam seafood in international markets by providing standardized products.
