New work day starts at sea

Visiting the coastal areas of Thai Binh and Nam Dinh provinces in the early morning, it is impressive to learn about the lives of the local fishermen there.

When dawn arrives in Dong Chau lagoon (Tien Hai district Thai Binh), small boats manned by local fishermen appear on the creek, signalling the start of a normal working day, with teenage boys catching crabs and snails and clam farmers rushing to their farms.

The morning in the coastal area of Hai Ly (Hai Hau district, Nam Dinh) features fishing boats full of their catch going back to the shore. When the boat has just landed, women and girls rush to transfer the shrimp and fish to the market, while men rearrange their nets and repair the ships to prepare for the next trip.
