Every year, in the main fishing season, the freshest batches of Phu Quoc anchovies are sorted and fermented separately to create a premium fish sauce that is high in protein. After being fermented, the extracted first-press fish sauce is then put in sealed terracotta barrels and buried underground. It is said that people in the past often marked the place where the fish sauce was buried with a pole sticking out from the ground, which literally translates as “nhú” in Vietnamese. Over time, due to spoonerism, people in Vietnam pronounce it as “lú” instead of “nhú”. Some also say that people simply forget where they buried the fish sauce after so many years, which is what Vietnamese people call “lú la lú lẫn”. This is how the name of Lú Fish Sauce was coined.
