Bountiful Season for Ocean Tuna in Binh Dinh

The fishing season for ocean tuna off central Viet Nam's Binh Dinh Province has only started for a month but 50 out of 400 vessels sailing out to sea have returned with catches of up to 1.5 tons of ocean tuna per trip.

Price of one kilogram of ocean tuna in the early harvest season is pretty high.

At present, a kilo of ocean tuna is ranging from VND85,000 and VND90,000 (US$5.6) depending on quality, about VND15,000 – 20,000 higher than the same period last year.

Binh Dinh is a coastal province in the central region.
