Most had been issued in Binh Thuan, Vinh Long, Yen Bai, Cao Bang, Lam Dong, Lai Chau, Nghe An and Lao Cai provinces and the number was 10 times higher than the ministry had approved in 12 years.

Oyster harvests on the decline

Nam Dinh has more than 1,500ha of tidal flats in Giao Thuy and Nghia Hung districts. In Giao Xuan Commune in Giao Thuy, there are more than 100 oyster breeding households with 300ha of farming land. Since 1997 local farmers have had to buy young oysters from different provinces. Because of the poor living environment, young oysters from central Thanh Hoa and Nghe An provinces were degenerate. Moreover, the province does not have an oyster processing factory. Also the development of oyster breeding in Nam Dinh was relatively uncontrolled.
