Site description (baseline)
The district has 9 km of coastline which is bordered by the Lac Tray River to the south and the Cam River to the north and east. The intertidal area of the Cam River mouth is very narrow and deep. There is only a narrow fringe of mangrove along the coastline. Dinh Vu and Vu Yen islands, situated in the Cam River, are both given over to aquacultural ponds, in which the dominant vegetation is Phragmites sp. A muddy intertidal area is located at the southern tip of the district close to the Lac Tray estuary. Along both rivers areas of sedge Cyperus sp. were observed.
