Vietnam’s seas and islands: Locks allow fishermen to stay out at sea

Truong Sa island district in Khanh Hoa province now has 4 locks on the islands of Truong Sa, Song Tu Tay, Da Tay, and Sinh Ton. Each can anchor hundreds of large-capacity vessels seeking shelter from storms. The locks also have a Fisheries Logistics Service Centre to help fishermen repair their vessels and provides them with fresh water and fuel.
