Balinese Fishermen Return From The Night At Sea

After a night fishing in the Bali Strait, the Balinese fishermen pull their fishing boats ashore and unload their catch.

After a night of fishing in the Bali Strait, Balinese fishermen pull their boats ashore and unload their catch (Gordon Ross)

If you sit on a Balinese beach in the morning, you can watch the fishing boats, known as jukung, sail ashore. Upon arrival, families and friends haul the boats out of the water and unload the night’s catch. Although the catch was small on the day I visited, they seemed happy and were eager to show me their boats and their night’s haul. The boats came ashore under sail for hours.
