Ly Son island, situated north-east of central Vietnam’s Quang Ngai province, is the country’s closest island to the disputed Paracel archipelago in the South China Sea. Fishing and onion and garlic farming are the main livelihoods for the 22,000 people on the island, and of the 541-boat fleet, up to 70 vessels engage in offshore fishing near the Paracel and Spratly archipelagos.
