This photo shows how traditional fishing is done on the island of MARE in New Caledonia.
It was submitted to the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2011.

If you’re interested in other examples of traditional fishing, the video below shows how a Bajau fisherman holds his breath for minutes and walks along the ocean floor to catch fish. The Bajau people are an indigenous group of southeast Asia who live a maritime lifestyle.
