From the beginning of September to December of the lunar calendar, people in coastal communes of provinces such as Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Khanh Hoa, and Kien Giang… go to the rocky beaches to get “sea luck”.

This is a precious vegetable with high nutritional value that many people buy to cook soup, make Tet jam, snacks or as gifts.

To harvest seaweed jam, people have to go early in the morning, when the tide recedes.

They use pieces of aluminum, beer bottle caps or spoons to scrape jam from slippery rocks.

In recent years, seaweed jam has been favored by many people, purchased at high prices, so in the season, people invite each other to hunt for “sea treasures”.

The seaweed jam in Tam Hai, Nui Thanh district (Quang Nam) is said to be the most expensive, from 3-4.5 million VND/kg.

According to scientists, this type of seaweed has nutritional content dozens of times higher than other types of seaweed.
