The past couple of days have been filled with visits to feed mills and fish farms in the more rural areas of Vietnam. Vietnam is the largest soybean meal buyer in the world, with about 10 million metric tons of soybean meal going to commercial feed production. About 20% of this goes to producing feed for aquaculture in South Vietnam.
On Sunday we spent the day in the city of Zhu Hai in Southern China. Zhu Hai is located on the Pearl River Delta. The Pearl River is a large river for aquaculture because it has a number of tributaries. Also because the river is in Southern China, there is a longer growing season for the fish.
