From fishing lines left behind by foreign ships at sea, fishermen working in fly nets in Ward 6, Tuy Hoa city have learned, adjusted and developed a very effective tuna fishing technique. Since 1995, tuna fishing has started to develop strongly, bringing high economic efficiency, stimulating fishermen to stick to the sea. Since then, a large port and many large-capacity ships have been formed, Phu Yen tuna has been supplied for domestic and international chains and restaurants. Culinary products from wild tuna have become Phu Yen’s specialty and are known by domestic and international friends.
