Small fishes – big catch
Fingerstall (small fishes to be cultivated) for 8 families cost 10 euros.
Adeu ist he fisherman in his family. Thereby he is only 10 years old. Every hand is needed for a little bit of food in many poor countries, as well as in Adeus hometown Khyasone in Laos.
Adeu goes to the river and takes the fishing nets he installed the night before out of the water every morning before the breakfast and before school begins. He shares a boat with other fishers in town, since hardly anybody is able to afford an own boat. The ten years old boy paddles targeted along the shore taking out three fingerlong fishes out of his net, which will serve as breakfast when he comes home. After his morning tasks he goes to school. He will become maths and English teacher when he grows up.
”Three fingerlong fishes were caught by the net at night. They are enough for the breakfast fish paste. They are very tasty with chili and garlic”, explains Adeu, 10 years old, Laos.
- Fishing and aqua culture are the livelihood of 540 million of people all over the world.
- We train the farmers in fishing and selling their capture in order to improve their income.
- Only few of the families in Khyasone that possess animals, have a bit more than they need to survive.
