What a beautiful scenery here is! It took so long to find this place Was this fishing village founded long time ago? This way to the sea, isn't it? How far is it from the sea? Wonderful! It's natural farmed oyster! You raised all these oysters naturally right? You are harvesting the oysters to sell them, right? If farmed by raft, they had been farming since the Tet holiday But we are farming them by the scaffold, it also get as big as the oyster farmed by raft.
There are so much nutrients for the oyster in this stream! Right? The oysters are fat because of the alluvium! All those scaffolds here are yours right? How many families are farming the oysters? Nhưng đeo tất thì tất còn mà chân đi Are you getting good money for those oysters every year? Not too much.
How old are you? 62 already.
62 already? Oh you're strong for your age, still able to walk all the ways here.
I'm young but I'm already exhausted! Oh yea, so you still go to work.
(Talked about finance) The oysters here are naturally raised I love eating oysters here It's a lot sweeter than oysters from other location! We don't use any other preservative, this is just the water from the oysters.
Water from oysters, to keep it fresh And we pour water out only when we sell Yes.
it's no preservative.
It must be delicious The oyster when cooked in soup, .
stir-fried, with eggs, in “Chả Rươi” style, will made a very good dish.

It's all oyster shells under my feet.
I need to step into the stream so it get less hurt.

Is it deep in the middle of the stream? They're fishing, oh my god, are you going into the stream? Yes.
– But they're fishing with net.
Oh stuck to my feet.

They're fishing down here If we get down there we will mess with their nets.
There are clams as well, apart from oysters, they're pretty good too.
Cooked with cucurbits and malabar spinach Look at these oysters! I'm old! – I'm just recording your working hands So I can learn it Let me try to harvest one on my own, please? Can't do it with your bare hand.
