New fishing season opened in Sa Huynh

Sunday - 10/02/2019 04:05
The ceremony, literally named ‘sea gate opening’, is held annually on the third day of the first lunar month. No one would be sure when this originated but all consider this as the most important day of fishermen living around the Sa Huynh estuary to start a new fishing year. The estuary is not disclosed until this ceremony.

On the day, thousands of local fishermen and visitors gathered in the estuary observing the ceremony praying to Lady Po Nagar, enjoying traditional folklore of bả trạo (rowing performance), music performance and lion dances. After the folklore performance, representative boats of the fishing villages will go out the estuary in the drumbeats by heads of the fishing communities.

Thach By, Thanh Duc 1 and Thanh Duc 2 fishing villages selected 21 boats to open the sea gate this year. All boats are colorfully decorated and ensured in good conditions looking forward to a fruitful fishing season.

While this ceremony is held in many estuaries, the one in Sa Huynh is considered the largest as the boats here outnumber any other fishing community in the province.
