At Tam Quan Bac Commune in Hoai Nhon District, many fishermen now do not face difficulties in building or assembling their own high-capacity fishing boats. Thanks to effective policies by the provincial authority, these fishermen have upgraded their fishing boat, and improved the efficiency of their fishing.

Currently, many fishermen are able to own 7 to 8 fishing boats with capacity over 600 continental horsepower (CV).

It is expected to support fishermen and develop production in the area.

"Previously, a fishing crew of 3-4 fishermen owned 1 fishing boat. After 1-2 years, when they separated from their crew, each of them had their own fishing boat. Accordingly, it has led to the development of a number of offshore fishing fleets in the area." - Truong Quang Minh, Vice President, Tam Quan Bac District People’s Committee, Binh Dinh Province.

"Currently, thanks to decision 48 assisting fishermen in supplying fishing boat fuel, many fishermen are able to produce and assemble their own fishing boats." - Pham Van Chung, Deputy Director, Department of Economy, Hoai Nhon District, Binh Dinh Province.
