Traditional fishing is a way to keep the environment. Although net fishing may not look very sustainable, the fact is that these small nets catch only a small amount of fish every time. The real threat in Indonesia is bomb and poison fishing. The use of dynamite and cyanide are forbidden in Indonesia, but still used in some remotes areas. Fortunately, Tagulandang is not one of them.
The picture was taken in the town of Humbia, South coast of Tagulandang.
Humbia is around 20 minutes from Bahoi. You can access it on a motorbike, or on a minibus. The main source of income for the locals is fishing and farming (snake Fruits, mainly).
