On February 3, the largest fish market in the North at So Thuong village in Hoang Mai district of Hanoi was crowded with people buying and selling red carps.

Carps are brought here early in the morning by small traders, then sold to other buyers. This year, due to the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are not many carps on the market.

The price of red carp fish also increases more than last year. Some traders said that in 2020, red carp only cost from 70-100 thousand VND/kg. But this year the price has spiked to nearly 300 thousand VND/kg of high-quality fish./.
