Pangasius fish prices plummet, farmers suffer huge losses

In 2018, the prices of pangasius fish fluctuated at VND29,000 per kilogram and sometime in September and October jumped to VND34,000-VND36,000 per kilogram, helping export turnover of pangasius fish to reach VND2.26 billion, up 26.5 percent. However, in the first eight months of this year, the situation was fairly gloomy.
