Other specialites with high commercial value such as Nam Roi and Da Xanh pomelo, king orange, longan fruit, and rambutan generate more than 560,000 tonnes in annual production.
Aquatic farming is one of the spearhead sectors of the province also, with output of seafood items such as tra fish and red tilapia reaching 126,000 tonnes per year. With regards to poultry and cattle breeding, the province also raises about 5.7 million chickens, pigs, and cows, demonstrating that Vinh Long plays an important role in the development of the Mekong Delta region as well as the country as a whole.
