During the early days of the Lunar New Year, fishermen in the central coastal city of Da Nang harvested huge batches of acetes. It is hoped that this will begin a year of good fishing.

Early morning, at the seashore of Tho Quang ward, tonnes of acetes are lined up to be exported.

According to traders, the price of fresh and dried acetes ranges from 15,000 to 30,000 dong per kilo. So, each batch of fishing can help farmers rake in several million dong.

The crop of acetes starts from early spring to the end of summer. For local fishermen, full batches of acetes on the first days of the Lunar New Year bring good luck for a whole year.-VNA
