Cast Net Fishing
Cast net fishing has been used for a long time and includes small cast nets operated in ponds, lakes, and rivers or in the coastal areas. Early in the 1990s, the stick-held falling net was introduced in Vietnam from China and Thailand . The number of fishing boats engaged in this fishery is small in comparison with other fisheries, but it is one of the most important types of fishing gear in Vietnam for catching squid. The products caught are dried in the sun and are valuable export commodities.
