According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the price of raw pangasius and shrimp in the Mekong Delta provinces in December 2022 decreased slightly in the context of many difficulties.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the price of raw pangasius in the Mekong Delta provinces in December decreased slightly by 500 - 700 dong/kg compared to the previous month, reaching around 28,500 - 29,000 VND/kg for pangasius size 800g-1kg. Large companies increased capacity at the end of the year, but still mainly prioritized catching raw fish in their own system for signed contracts, with few new transactions. Companies exporting to the Chinese market are mainly looking to purchase large fish from 1.2kg or more, but the low fish stock in most localities makes transactions slow.
The price of pangasius fingerling size 28-35 fish/kg in December was at 34,000 - 35,000 VND/kg, down 3,000 - 4,000 VND/kg compared to the previous month. The demand for catching seed of private farmers and businesses tends to be slow due to concerns about the output of the fish market.

Meanwhile, the price of raw shrimp in the Mekong Delta decreased slightly in the context of weak supply and a decline in exports at the end of the year due to declining market demand, difficulties in raw materials and high production costs. 
In Bac Lieu, the average price of frozen black tiger shrimp size 20, 30, 40 pieces/kg is currently at 255,000 VND/kg and 200,000 VND/kg, 145,000 VND/kg, respectively, down 15,000 - 25,000 VND/kg compared to the previous month. Prices of frozen white shrimp size 60, 70 pieces/kg respectively at 100,000 VND/kg, 95,000 VND/kg, down 5,000 VND/kg compared to the previous month; while the larger size of 30 - 40 pieces/kg increased slightly by 5,000 - 10,000 VND/kg due to the scarcity of goods. Export processing factories have not yet signed many contracts for 2023, so although shrimp supply is low, prices are less volatile.
