Binh Chau is one of the most famous coastal communes in Quang Ngai with hundreds of offshore fishing boats. The commune has a rich nearshore aquatic ecosystem. Its Sa Ky port opens a gateway to Ly Son, an island famous for black garlic and volcanic cliffs. The commune is also known for its Ba Lang An, a destination where Quang Ngai's easternmost lighthouse is located. From June to August, fishermen in Binh Chau ride their basket boats to the sea to catch seaweed and squid.

In addition to fish and squid, fishermen also exploit seaweed. The seaweed harvesting season starts from June so that the seaweed and other animals living in the forest have time to reproduce for the next harvest. (Photo: VN Express)

Before cutting, fishermen use nets to surround the seaweed so that the seaweed does not drift away. One kilogram of seaweed costs about VND 5,000 (US$ 0,2). A fisherman can earn about VND 200,000 (US$ 8,7) from the profession. (Photo: VN Express)
