Reported at the Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC).

Catfish harvest in November 2023 continued to increase quite well compared to the same period last year due to the start of the year-end harvest and increasing exports to some markets. Catfish production in the month was about 177.3 thousand tons, up 4.5% over the same period last year. The application of high-tech intensive and super-intensive shrimp farming models helps increase production.

Catfish is a typical fish that is considered a brand of Vietnam.

Catfish is a typical fish that is considered a brand of Vietnam. Before 2016, the production of Vietnam’s catfish accounted for over 99% of the world’s farmed catfish production. However, some countries in the world also see this potential and start raising catfish such as India, Indonesia, etc. Many countries are investing in and expanding the area of catfish farming, which threatens Vietnam’s position. Now, Vietnam has no longer a “monopoly” position on catfish.

According to information at the recent Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC), catfish production in India in 2023 is estimated at 668,000 tons and is expected to reach 695,000 tons in 2024, up 5% next year.

Following that, Indonesia is also starting to have clear results from catfish farming. The country expects to reach an output of more than 224,000 tons in 2023 and 229,000 tons in 2024.

Catfish production in China is growing significantly at 400,000 tons per year. For Bangladesh, although the growth rate is lower, it is estimated to reach nearly 500,000 tons, an increase of 1% this year and 2024.

The report at the Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC) stated that: 2023 is considered a record for the global catfish industry. It is estimated that the total global catfish production in 2023 will reach 3.1 million tons, an increase of nearly 9% compared to 2.9 million tons in 2022.

It is expected that in 2024, global catfish production will reach about 3.2 million tons, a slight increase of 3% compared to 2023. In particular, Vietnam plays a key role when catfish production in 2023 accounts for 52% of global production. In 2024, Vietnam is forecast to recover catfish production and exports with an expected growth of 3%./.
