Chitin Drying-Process Worker

This picture was taken during my last trip back to Ca Mau to visit VNO’s management when I departed VI Group. The background was the shrimp heads and shells that had been purified and transformed from aquaculture waste into the main pharmaceutical ingredient for glucosamine-medicine producing. This is one of the final stage where the shrimp heads and shells, after chemical treatment, are dried under the sun light for a few days before stocking into the final chitin product. The workers would walk back and forth across the “chitin field” to turn around the heads and shells for a well-rounded dry. This is one of my favorite picture in this deal, taken March 8th, 2014.
