Depleted Fish Stocks in Philippines

Share the joy

Depleted fish stocks in the Philippines.  Look at this series of photos which show Tigbauan, Iloilo residents trying to wrest a living, or part of a living  from the sea using a net from shore.


Look closely and you can see the arc of the net


The net closes, hopefully with a haul of fish.  Note the wooden harnesses used to give the net handlers leverage to haul in the net.  This is hard work!



The final catch resulting from much hard work by many hands and investment in fishing gear. This small catch of mostly tiny fish must be divided among several families.
