The statement also said the Vietnamese department has asked the newly approved companies to closely control their processing operations to make sure that their export products meet strict requirements from FSIS.
On May 25, 2016, the U.S. Senate voted to cancel the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s inspection program on catfish.
According to Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), Vietnam’s export value of catfish to the U.S. rose 7.2 percent year on year to $151 million during January-April this year. VASEP expects the year on year export value of catfish to the U.S. to increase by about 10 percent to 15 percent in the second quarter.
