Some days, there were more than ten kilograms or at least 3-4 kilograms of snails

Specifically, small 2nd class snails were bought by the barn owner for nearly 100,000 VND / kg, large snails about 200,000 VND / kg. It is only 1/2 of every year.

In addition, there are sea areas in Phan Thiet city and Tuy Phong district. ..." - Mr. Huynh Quang Huy, Director of Binh Thuan Fisheries Sub-Department, said.

According to fishermen, compared to other occupations, sweet snail farming brings a high income. On average, each night when the trap is released, each coracle brings back about ten kilograms of sweet snails. At a time when the selling sweet snails price is from 200,000 to 300,000 VND/kg, fishermen can earn millions per night.
