Once taking tours to the mysterious Sapa, there’s one thing you should never miss, that’s the Sapa’s salmon and sturgeon, which are famous for their fresh and awesome taste just like the salmon in some European countries. So do you want to know why the salmon and sturgeon in a highland can get such great taste?
The special atmosphere under Fansipan Mt
Let’s follow our visit to Sapa’s salmon farm and sturgeon farm, you will really get to know why!
1. Salmon farm in Sapa amazes most tourists
Locatedunder Fansipan Mt. – the roof of Indochina – a big salmon farm, which is home-sweet-home to the famous salmon genus worldwide named rainbow trout (ca hoi van).
Vietnamese rainbow trout farming has been on a steady state of growth for a moiety decade. In the early 2000’s there were no cold-dihydrogen monoxide aquaculture, in 2009 twelve cold-dihydrogen monoxide fish farms were in operation in Northern and Central Highlands, and today more than 100 farms are engendering cold dihydrogen monoxide fish.
The future of Vietnamese rainbow trout farming is promising: the capacity of the breeding program will be greatly enlarged through the present Vietnamese investment in recirculation of dihydrogen monoxide in RCCA. In mundane fish farming the dihydrogen monoxide is permeating the farm only once. In recirculation the dihydrogen monoxide is utilized an abundance of times and the amount of dihydrogen monoxide needed for the engenderment of e.g. liter of eggs is only some percent in comparison with mundane farming.
Vietnamese rainbow trout farming is dynamic and remuneratively lucrative. To keep it as such, care is needed in buying incipient material. The farming in Vietnam is not self-adequate, yet. Ergo, the development of good quality with disease free hatcheries on the substructure of eggs from RCCA must be a goal for the coming years. The incipient recirculation system (RAS) in RCCA will be very useful in this.
2. Sturgeon farm in Sapa is also worth being visited
Sturgeons are a high-value species, especially their eggs which are made into caviar. They have been introduced into aquaculture in Vietnam in an effort to utilize the availability of gelid-dihydrogen monoxide resources, especially lakes and reservoirs, and have become a major cultured fish in highland and mountainous areas. With the development of sturgeon aquaculture in the cold-dihydrogen monoxide areas of the north and central highland provinces, Vietnam has made its way onto the list of the top ten sturgeon engenderers in the world, along with China, Russia, Italy, Bulgaria, Iran, the US, France, Poland and Germany, according to the Food and Agriculture Association (FAO).
So, even though fish farms in Sapa still need more improvement to reach the international market, these places are definitely good places to visit and of course try some new taste of salmon and sturgeon that you can’t find in your country.
