Fishermen in central Quang Nam province's Hoi An Town recently caught sharks a few miles off-shore, said Nguyen Van An, chairman of the town's People's Committee.

They caught 10 sharks weighing from 40 to 70 kilograms each and sold them to traders in Da Nang City .

From September to November (lunar calendar), when winds strike from the north-east, sharks tend to move to the area around Cu Lao Cham Island to avoid the strong winds.

The sharks reportedly pose no danger to people./.
