People can buy fresh krill as soon as they are brought ashore.
Krill is small crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea and also known as small shrimp.When krill season arrives at the end of the 6th lunar month, fishermen can catch up to 80-100 kg of krill for each catch.
A kilogram of krill can fetch VND15,000-VND20,000 ($0.64-$ 0.86) depending on its quality.“On average, my family catches about 90 kg per day and earns 1 million dong,” said Mr. Tu Duc Nam, 58.
A middleman carries baskets of krill to sell to cold storages and the nearest wet markets.
A villager uses nets to dry krill, which can then be used to make various dishes.A local resident said: “We dry the mollusk or turn it into a fermented mixture to sell at a higher price of 30,000 VND to 40,000 VND per kg.However, these processes take months.”
