With total investment of 30 million USD, the project is expected to go into operation from 2021. The project applies modern marine farming technology of the world such as: round cage aquaculture technology of Norway, feeding and controlling technology of France, fish harvesting technology of Australia. With the purpose of exporting, Mavin will put high attention in environment controlling and traceability of origin, meeting recommendation of European Community (EC) on combating illegal seafood exploitation (IUU).
