Vietnam’s catfish demand surges in January-February

March 03, 2024

Vietnam experienced a notable increase in demand for catfish across key markets in January and February, in contrast to the subdued performance observed in 2023. Hoe attributed this uptick to improving consumer demand in several key countries that import Vietnamese catfish. For instance, China, the largest importer of Vietnamese catfish, witnessed a nearly threefold jump in imports compared to January last year. An Giang Province-based Nam Viet Group, a prominent player in catfish exportation across more than 30 countries, including the U.S. and China, acknowledged the lackluster catfish export scenario in 2023. Vietnam’s catfish exports are forecast to witness a slight increase this year, possibly reaching $2 billion, representing a more than 10-percent surge from $1.8 billion in 2023.
