However, the development of the seafood processing industry had not gone exactly according to plan, resulting in a number of practical difficulties such as an imbalance of supply and demand and an unstable market.

The fishing industry aimed to increase production by 8-10 percent per year and to export 6.5-7 million tonnes of seafood worth US$8-9 billion by 2020, following a development strategy approved recently by the Prime Minister.
The country earned $3.98 billion from seafood exports during the first 10 months of the year, up 14.46 percent compared to 2009.
