People here call fishermen “Danmin”, and their songs are called Xianshui Songs. These fishermen are mostly located in Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan, which many Lingnan fishermen are from Dongguan. In 1527, a Ming fisherman named Mo Dengyong from Jiaoli village in Zhongtang set up the Mo Dynasty in Vietnam, which lasted 66 years.
