Fish Farm

Chau Doc is noted for its fish and fish farms. Many types of fresh water fish are grown in the surrounding canal and Song Hau River (Bassac River). Any stay here should include a water visit through the farms to observe the river life and possibly the feeding of fish on a private floating farm. Fish farms come in all shapes and sizes. They are often the family home with the fish being raised in large wooden cages suspended beneath the often crude sheds that service as both a workplace and  omewhere to live. These floating farms often cook up the many tonnes of fish feed in large cookers on the deck. Visitors can travel between the farms by boat hired at the riverside park or go on a more informative tour and experience the ravenous  feeding of 1000s of hungry fish on one of the floating farms. Once raised to a marketable size, the fish are transported live down to Long Xuyen for processing in purpose build boats with open sides that allow the river water to circulate through the fish holds. A trip to the fish farms can also take in a visit to the Cham Villages set just beside the river. Local Charm vendors will show you their beautiful silk made into scarves and other clothing items along with a range of sourvenirs for sale.
