Small island (islet), small boat, small quantity fish catch, small income
Strong winds and high waves: February 2008 several days, in April, several days, June several days, mid of July; even in Idhul Fitri days - all have occurred almost a week
Forced fishermen not go to sea, as result there was no income gain in regular basis, meanwhile purchasing power parity lower and lower... and absolutely depends on food aid... TRANSITION period or "Pancaroba" is almost over but high waves still fluctuative..!
No day without fishing, although fish catch varied for each season. However, whatever fish get by the artisanal fishers they sell and consume to their family.
