With the selling price of 500,000 VND/kg, I made 1.5 million dong thanks to this cheap fish,” said Mr. Ca.($1=24,000 VND)
To catch yams, fishermen have to set sail from 3am, each trip lasts from 4 to 5 hours. As noted by the reporter, from 7 am, along the coast of Sam Son city, there were dozens of boats docked.
