Long Hai fish market, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Vietnam is the place to buy and sell seafood, especially dried scad, with the scientific name of Decapterus. Thousands of fry trays are dried on rooftops and yards by hundreds of workers. The weather here is very sunny with high temperatures and the workers work with great intensity. I came to Long Hai on a photo trip and was really overwhelmed by the scale of the fishing village. Fish are bought in bulk in large ships on the sea, steamed, and put into wooden trays to dry. Fish usually dry after 1 day in the sun. (Photo: VN Express
