VTV.vn - The central region's fishermen in the early days of the lunar New Year have been eager to go out to sea, hoping for a bumper catch to celebrate the New Year.

Notably, it is also the first day of the fishing festival in Quang Ngai, a traditional festival of fishermen in the Sa Huỳnh fishing waters. Thousands of fishermen have decorated their boats with bright yellow stars on red flags, banners and slogans. After the launching ceremony, the vessels head out to distant waters. This is an important festival in the spiritual life of the local people as they pray for good weather and bumper catches in the new year. Fishing is a key economic sector for the region. In 2017, localities have advocated building and raising the capacity of fishing boats from 250 to 650 horsepower, to help fishing trips last longer.
