The results of the application of new techniques and technologies are clearly visible. His fish farm doubled its revenue. Using semi-natural methods, pure farming and no use of stimulants, the batches of fingerlings from Cong’s fish farm have been sold with good quality. From several hundred million, the annual income has increased from 1.2 to 1.5 billion dong.

Having raised Japanese carp, Cong used his own experience in pressing koi seed and achieved a high rate.

Not to mention, thanks to the more purebred, the koi fish from the Cong farm adapts well to the environment, is chosen by many customers in the provinces and begins to have export orders to foreign countries.
