Fishing service vessels exceed 130 nautical miles to supply oil and drinking water, and at the same time collect seafood to bring to shore for consumption. However, at the beginning of the year, the exploitation output decreased, 50 ships only operated to maintain jobs for more than 500 workers.

After the departure ceremony to catch the southern fish crop, dozens of large-capacity boats of the Thuan An Fishery Logistics Service Association (Thuan An ward, Hue city) began to sail over 100 nautical miles from the shore to provide fuel, food, drinking water and essential items for fishing vessels operating at sea. At the same time, take advantage of the long time at sea to buy a large amount of seafood to bring to the shore for consumption.
PV’s Note Infonet at the anchorage in Thuan An ward (Hue city) and Phu Hai commune (Phu Vang district, Thua Thien-Hue province), it shows that there are many ships at anchor, but most of them are trawlers (trawl boats), Particularly, fishing service ships have reached out to sea, absent from the anchorage area.
“We only go fishing and squid fishing near the shore because at the beginning of the year there is little seafood while gasoline increases, but the investment costs for each trip away from the shore are high,” said the owner of a fishing boat with the number TTH-90379TS, selling seafood. told traders at Thuan An fishing port (Hue City).
Mr. Tran Cuong (Member of Thuan An Fishery Logistics Service Association) is going to buy seafood on the offshore sea, he informed by phone to PV that the ship has 9 brothers working together and can sail for 12 hours. day and expected Monday (March 28) to reach the shore, but only collected 9 quintals of seafood quickly.
“The ship itself has a large capacity and does not have to carry fishing gear, so when it comes in, it can carry over 30 tons of seafood; but now there is very little seafood, go to buy it so that you can have a job,” said Mr. Cuong.

Similarly, information with PV Infonet By phone, Mr. Duong Van Nga (SN 1987, resident of Thuan An ward, Hue city – Owner of a service ship with number TTH-902.23TS) on his way from offshore to shore said that his ship had sailed farther from shore. 130 nautical miles to provide drinking water, oil, food… for fishing boats at sea, it took 11 days to be at sea and only collected a few tons of seafood. Expected to dock early this morning. Due to the increase in oil and gas, this trip to the shore only costs enough and pays the brothers to go along.
According to fishing boat owners, last year, each ship went only 3-5 days and on average there were over 20 tons of seafood ashore, but since the beginning of this year, the amount of fish bought very little and fluctuates about 4-6 tons when it comes to shore, but it takes a long time to get there. On the other hand, the price of petrol increases and the cost of each trip is high, leading to no profit, but ship owners still have to go to sea to buy and sell to maintain business relationships, keep and create jobs for fellow workers.

Talk to PV InfonetMr. Tran Van Hai – President of Thuan An Fisheries Logistics Service Association said that the branch currently has 50 ships (30 specialized in purchasing and 20 fishing) with a capacity of 400 to 1,000 CV. ships are operating at sea every day, although profits are not high. In addition, the ships still go to sea continuously, no ships stay ashore because of the “mission” to create jobs for more than 500 employees with regular jobs all year round.
“Since its establishment until now, Thuan An Fishery Logistics Service Association has faced many difficulties such as when the amount of seafood caught and purchased is large, when it comes to shore, the price of seafood decreases. It’s not yet the peak fishing season and fortunately the price of seafood has not decreased at the beginning of this year, if seafood prices fall further while oil prices rise like this, it will be difficult for ships to do business”, Mr. Tran Van Hai added.
Fisheries are most abundant around the 6th and 7th lunar month every year and the seafood output has a lot of potential, the most crowded fishing vessels are Hoang Sa and Truong Sa fishing grounds.
