Sweden and Denmark have recognised Vietnamese tra fish as being raised in accordance with international sustainable development standards.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) cites information posted on Sweden’s website ( and Denmark’s website ( that have revised their Fish Guides, including Vietnamese tra fish on their “green list”.

Vietnamese tra fish has been removed from the Norwegian “grey list”, but still requires certification from the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC).
