It was a late spring afternoon on Tra Co beach, Quang Ninh, Vietnam, when the sun was approaching the horizon. Mr.Vien, a local fisherman, started his working day as soon as the tide went out from the shore. Pushing the special shovel into the wet sand, he repeatedly dug several holes along the beach. As the holes instantly filled up with the seawater, the sandworm started to appear. Then Mr.Vien went back and forth to collect the long worms.
“It’s a hard job, however I can earn 450,000VND (around 20USD) if I am lucky enough to collect a kilogram of worms”
