(seafood.vasep.com.vn) At the end of the lunar year, at two fishing ports of Dong Tac (Tuy Hoa City) and Phu Lac (Dong Hoa District), boats arrived at full speed, the working atmosphere of fishermen was also more urgent to take advantage of fishing. In particular, over a week, dozens of tuna fishing vessels of Phu Yen fishermen landed with high yields every day.

Mr. Phan Thuan, Chairman of Fishery Union of Ward 6, said that more than two thirds of offshore fishing boats in ward 6 landed, including 80% of fishing vessels with high profit. On average, each fishing vessel has 30-50 MT of ocean tuna, with the output of 1.2-2 MT; in particular, there was a fishing gear of 2.5-3 MT. For flying fish, fishing boats also harvested from 8-12 MT each boats.

Recently, the provincial People's Committee has instructed Tuy Hoa city to expedite the dredging of the channel of Da Dien estuary in order to create favorable conditions for fishermen to exploit sea products.

According to Mr. Nguyen Tri Phuong, Deputy Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, production of fishery exploited in January 2018 was estimated at 4,100 MT, up nearly 1% over the same period last year, including ocean tuna with 220 MT ( increased by 3.8%). In order to create favorable conditions for the next season, the province is interested and concentrates on dredging the canal into the fishing ports, creating conditions for vessels to enter safely. In 2018, Phu Yen is restructuring the fishing fleet, buying seafood under the project of restructuring the agricultural sector of the province in the direction of increasing value added and sustainable development. The formation of a fleet of logistics services on the sea is very necessary and Phu Yen encouraged the development of this fleet.
