Fishery forms main livelihood in Ly Son Island District

Ly Son Island District in Quang Ngai Province is not just well-known for growing crops like onion and garlic but also for its fishery industry.

Fishermen here make a healthy livelihood from catching fish and also help protect the country's sovereignty in the East Sea.

Every morning at the wharf in Ly Son District in Quang Ngai Province, local residents wake up to boisterous sounds of fishing boats returning after a nights fishing trip on the East Sea.

Markets open at the wharf for about two hours from 5.30 to 7.30am. Noisy sounds invite customers as they settle fish prices.

Tran Ngoc Nguyen, chairman of the People's Committee of Ly Son Island District said that the island has nearly 500 fishing boats, out of which nearly 200 have capacity to catch fish in deep seawaters, such as in locations around the Paracel and Spratly Islands.

He added that every year fishermen catch about 45,000 tons of fish. Nowadays, more than 22,000 residents on the island are fishermen.
