At the break of day, a variety of vehicles gather at the port, about 15 kilometers from Phan Rang City, to transport fresh seafood to wet markets and restaurants in the province and neighboring areas.

Ninh Thuan Province is blessed with abundant seafood resources, such as anchovies and mackerel.

Boats loaded with fish quickly return to the port after their departure.

After each fishing trip, the worn-out nets on these boats will be repaired to make them look new and ready for the next journey.

One of the traditional crafts in Thanh Hai Commune, where the port is located, is net weaving.

There is a net factory near the fishing port, which employs both women and men.

The job requires meticulousness and patience but helps the residents of My Tan Fishing Village stabilize their income.

Each net weaver can earn VND400,000 (US$16.2) per day.
