Oyster season in Lap An lagoon
TTH.VN - From the second to the third month of the lunar calendar, Lap An lagoon (Phu Loc District) is bustling with talking and laughter of oyster fishermen in the harvest season. For them, this is a hard work, as they have to work very early in the morning to collect the oysters for early shipments. Each heavy load of oysters is both their effort and desire for a full life for their families and children. Therefore, for generations, fishermen in Lap An lagoon still stick to oyster farming, although it may be not "good season, and good price" every single year, they have better life thanks to the oyster farming.
Thua Thien Hue Weekly would like to introduce a series of photos of collecting oysters in Lap An lagoon, taken by photographer Luong Nam Nhat Long!
