The adoption of VietGAP aquaculture standards has been instrumental in raising public awareness of water environment management.

Hanoi's agricultural sectorhas supported fish farmers to develop and expand aquaculture models in line with VietGAP standards. This has resulted in high economic efficiency, clean and safe products, and reduced environmental pollution and production costs

After earning a low income from traditional fish farming, Le Van Phuong's family in Trung Tu Commune (Ung Hoa District) switched to VietGAP aquaculture on their 2.7-hectare farm with the help of local agricultural extension officers. Phuong has found that VietGAP fish are healthier and require less feed than before. He has also been able to stop using antibiotics to treat and prevent fish diseases.
