Truong Sa ocean locks represent sovereignty and shelter 

Truong Sa island, offshore of Khanh Hoa province is home to ocean locks that have been providing supplies and shelter for fishermen for decades, but they also represent Vietnam’s sovereignty over the islands and territorial waters.
The ocean locks have long been a source of supplies, repairs, and shelter for fishermen like Hien to take refuge at sea when storms rear up on the horizon.
The Truong Sa island’s locks started up in January 2019 and have received hundreds of fishing vessels to use repair services, refuel, and access essential supplies.
Currently, Truong Sa island is home to four ocean locks on Song Tu Tay (Southwest Cay), Da Tay (West Reef), Truong Sa (Spratly), Sinh Ton (Sin Cowe) islands./.
