Fishing 3 SL by jennystokes Fishing 3 SL by jennystokes
Just a net a man and a healthy sea!
I say the above because Sri Lanka has used Sustainable Fishing for years now.
This is partly because the Fishing Communities all round the Island are very Militant and want to keep the old ways.
This of course means, we have very healthy seas.
Indian Fishing crews come to SL to fish because they have NEVER practiced this method........they are rounded up and put in prison by the SL Navy. A lot NEVER get back home. (Not the way to deal with this)!
This man is able to sustain his Family by catching 1 large fish.

Thank you for any Fav's or Comments.
:)

Just one HUGE fish.................unfortunately I was looking the other way when he caught it.
When I looked back I was shocked at the size of it!
I hope he could feed his whole Family.
The Fisherman in SL are very proud and extremely Militant (which is good) because they have stopped 'trawling' in the waters around SL
However, there is the Indians who (have fished their waters dry) and keep encroaching on SL water.
Usually the SL Navy gets involved and Indian fisherman don't return home agaIN.
This is also NOT good.

I am so sorry to hear this.
Nowadays there is so much knowledge about the heart, I am sure she will pull through.
How old is she?
