People in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam are busy fishing when the flooding season has come.

On the fields of An Giang Province’s Phu Hoi Commune, nets have been laid to catch fish, crabs and snakes.

Huynh Van Tai, a local resident who has much experience in fishing during the flooding season, said that this year the flooding arrived earlier than expected so many people had not yet prepared for the work.

Bui Thi Suong in Dong Thap Province’s Hong Ngu District said that earlier, his family earned bigger income from fishing on the flooding season. She even hired dozens of workers for the work. However, in recent years, the seafood source has much decreased.

These days, she and her husband are taking advantages of the flooding season to catch some fish for sales in the market.
