Vietnam looks to increase yellowfin exports

With the recent cuts in bluefin tuna catches in the eastern Atlantic Ocean region, Vietnam’s yellowfin tuna industry is hoping for better earnings. The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) in early February announced it is aiming for a 4.5 percent increase in tuna exports to 120,000 metric tons valued at USD 300 million, compared to 2009 totals valued at USD 13 million.
