IN BRIEF - Chinese fishing technology extirpates Binh Dinh’s tunas

VIET NAM
Friday, November 23, 2012

The Binh Dinh province has 2300 vehicles for offshore fishing, including 1500 ones for tuna fishing with which local fishermen have caught 9041 tons of fish so far this year.

Binh Dinh’s tuna had been favored by clients thanks to its high and stable quality-until the day a lot of ship owners stopped fishing with the traditional technology and begin fishing with imported high voltage lamp systems.

Van Cong Viet, a fisherman in Hai Cang ward of Quy Nhon City, the owner of two fishing boats, said that the tunas caught with the new technology have been refused by merchants. Reasoning the low quality, the merchants only pay 85,000 dong per kilo. Meanwhile, local fishermen previously sold at 137,000 dong.
