The fish must be freshly caught and of medium size. They are cleaned in sea water before being preserved. The fish are not cleaned with fresh water because this takes away their taste and smell and the fish can go off easily during a long time of preservation. The vats must be made from special woods, including jackfruit wood. The fish is mixed with salt and put in the jars in layers. Over the top layer is placed a bamboo grill or dried areca bark. The vat is carefully sealed and kept in dark, dry, clean and cool places away from the wind. After six or seven months, the fish is mixed again. When a white yeast substance forms on the top of it, the grid is taken out. At the beginning of the lunar new year, the preserved mixture is filtered through a piece of silk. Then we have dark red fish sauce with a good flavour.
