Danang, Vietnam – “Well I can tell you, all my fish are dead now.”
Nguyen Thi Bach Vien sounds more resigned than anything else. She is calling from her home in Ben Tre province, a few hours drive south of Ho Chi Minh City in the belly of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, where she has a fish farm and gardens of coconut and pomelo trees.
Vien’s freshwater shrimps and giant river prawns are dying, too.
