The bottom of the lagoon is shallow but there is a lot of mud, creating an abundant and rich brackish ecosystem. After building a dam to prevent saline intrusion (in 1978), Chau Truc gradually became a pure freshwater lagoon. Seafood resources in the lagoon today feed enough people in 4 communes along the lagoon, helping them to have a prosperous life. The rich and natural geographical structure also creates a poetic, peaceful, attractive landscape and holds anyone's footsteps once stepping in here.

In the afternoon, when the sun gradually let go, the color of light sunshine along with evening clouds reflects the face of the lagoon is the time when people bring out fishing gear. Watching the basket boat and shade of the people drop the net busily in the lagoon's face, the people's heart also wants to immerse itself in the scenery. When the darkness covers the lagoon's face, everyone goes home waiting for the dawn.

Night on the lagoon is the time for symphony of frogs and insects. Sitting on the island near the burning fire, grilling the fish, silently listening to the echoing sound is when our heart is peaceful and strange. In front of this magical melody, the soul suddenly becomes poetic, washes out all the problems and belongs to nature completely.
