Long Hai is a small fishing village in Ba Ria Province and located 30km north-east of Vung Tau. It was a very cloudy morning when we arrived at Long Hai. We also reached Long Hai a little late. So most of the fishing nets have already been picked clean and folded, and most of the catch sorted. Nevertheless, we managed to get a feel of what life is like in the heartlands.

Pulling baskets back off the beach.

Ladies sorting out crabs on the beach.

Packing sorted fish into crates.

Ice is provided for free by the companies that are buying up the stock of fish. They will send the ice in trucks, and the same trucks will leave with all the processed and packed fish.

Fish crates iced and value calculated.

Heads, tails and waste collection.

Nets are untangled, tended and kept.
