Whilst sheltering from a storm, a chance encounter led to an insight into the risky fishing techniques used on Indonesia’s tropical reefs. We were invited out on a local fishing boat where we were learnt about the crazy reality of fishing for aquarium fish, where they come from, and how they are caught. This is the real finding Nemo. Being invited aboard a local fishing boat by these lovely, friendly fishermen is one of the adventures which will remain in our memories for a long time. Compressor diving or Hookah diving in Indonesia is responsible for many deaths and life changing injuries, the risks are very real. We are amazed at the amount of effort that goes into catching pretty fish from the reef just so that they can be displayed in fish-tanks around the world.

Yes, how sad to see all those pretty fish being taken from their reef, it all seems rather cruel. But interesting as you say next time one is in an acquarium to think about how they are fished. I thought I heard recently that Sumatra had an earthquake, I guess you weren’t affected by it. Fascinating all your videos.
Greetings to both of you. Elizabeth (Argentina)
