The fishermen hit the anchoviesRecently, fishermen in the South Central provinces have been continuously hit by anchovies ...
In the area of Cua Be, Phuoc Dong commune, Nha Trang city, Khanh Hoa province, the atmosphere of buying anchovies is very exciting.
The fishermen said excitedly that the anchovy fishing area is only 7 to 10 nautical miles from the shore, so it does not take much time and money. Vessels start departing from 2am and by 8am on the same day to be able to return to shore. Each vessel on average harvests about 1 ton of anchovies, many vessels collect up to 2-3 tons of fish / night.
Currently, the price of anchovies sold at Hon Ro port to traders ranges from 10,000-15,000 VND / kg. If the fish quantity is stable, each fisherman can earn 10-15 million VND / month.
Mr. Nguyen Van Bay, a fisherman, said: Anchovies with a small capacity of less than 90 CV. At night, when the lights are off, the fish come, then use a large net to attach 2 heads to the 2 pole. During the day, draw the net to absorb the flow of fish. This time is the peak of the anchovy fishing season, which will last until the end of October.
Mr. Nguyen Trung Hieu, Head of Hon Ro fishing port management board, said: The amount of fish caught for sale to oysters in Khanh Hoa is mainly from neighboring provinces such as Phu Yen, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan. Anchovies, after being purchased, are then dried or sold to establishments and factories making fish sauce.
