Industrial marine fish farm can withstand powerful storms on Van Phong Bay

In recent years, unfavorable weather conditions, especially powerful storms such as Typhoon Damrey in 2017 and Typhoon Molave hitting Vietnam some days ago, have caused heavy losses to many cage farming households. This requires a change from tradition wooden cages to HDPE cages. In fact, the HDPE cages of the experimental farm of High-tech Marine Fish Farming Center (Research Institute for Aquaculture No 1) at Van Phong Bay could withstand Typhoon Damrey.
