Biotechnology is making essential contributions and poses significant challenges to aquaculture and fisheries' new product development via enhancing taste, shell life, nutrition, and quality and reducing waste. Aquatic products biotechnology might be regarded as reliable for enhancing and expanding the production and processing of sustainable food products created for the future of the expanding global population. Aquatic product biotechnology consists of (1) new technological applications in aquatic farming to improve productivity and feed utilization, (2) commercial packaging technology for preservation, and (3) effective use of byproducts or wastes and the process of product innovation. Some insights into the biotechnological development of aquatics production in Vietnam are reviewed in this chapter. 

Keywords: Aquaculture, Aquatic farming, Aquatic product, Biotechnology, Byproducts, Fisheries, Nutrients, Packaging, Vietnam.
