The Life of Balinese Fishermen

In this edition we have prepared a selected topic namely about the life of Balinese fishermen. The island area of 5,632.86 km2 is indeed surrounded by coastal territory. And, as an island lying right in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago of 17,500 islands, Bali is in a highly strategic position. Benoa Harbor situated in the southern tip of Bali is frequently selected as the base for fishing vessels from around the globe, particularly those catching tuna fish in the waters of Indonesia or Indian Ocean.
However, considering that many cultural activities are covered in this edition, we therefore focus our topic on cultural activities. Nevertheless, we still highlight various activities of fishermen at coastal territory of Bali. There is even a unique news item you can read in this edition about a fishing vessel which drifted ashore filled with a large amount of fish like tuna and oil sardines, but without its captain and crew. After four days since it drifted ashore at southern part of Bali the vessel remains a mystery. Have a nice read!
