Trieu Lang commune in Trieu Phong district has more than 300 boats that fish in coastal waters.

In October, the catch of local fishermen was estimated at over 356 tonnes of seafood with high economic value, such as Bombay duck, silver pomfret, and squid, among others.

The boats head offshore at 3-4am and return at 8-9am to sell their catch. They then return to sea. On average, each boat makes two trips a day.

Fishermen said they can catch more seafood after storms and rough seas. All of the seafood is bought by traders on the beach when the boats return.

According to the Sub-Department of Fisheries in Quang Tri province, the estimated total seafood exploitation in the first 10 months of this year was nearly 32,000 tonnes. To ensure the sustainable exploitation of aquatic resources, the department has coordinated with relevant sectors to provide information and guide fishermen on fishing in the right areas and not using destructive fishing methods, to protect the fishing grounds./.
