An anchovy fishing boat releases a huge net in the sea off Phu Yen Province in southern Vietnam. The anchovy fishing season is usually in the summer and lasts for more than two months. Each time, fishermen catch 10 to 20 baskets of fish. Each basket weighs 20 kilograms (44 pounds) and can be sold for about $45 (U.S.).
