Now he earns as much as VNĐ4-5 billion (US$180,000-$220,000) a year from salmon. Mẫu Sơn Commune, Lộc Bình District is located about 170km northeast of Hà Nội, with the highest peak reaching about 1,600 metres above sea level. The area is a famous tourism site for its spectacular landscape, its tea from tea buds plucked from the mountain's vast tea fields, and now, for its delicious salmon, as well.
