Bamboo Fish Pin

Bamboo Fish Pin in the Philippines

There are many Fish Pins in the Philippines along the coast and in the inlet bays. This is a rather large fish pin made of buried Bamboo poles with nets to trap the fish. The fish enter the Maze of the Fish Pins and get trapped when the high tide recedes to low tide. These are very effective ways of fishing but in populated areas of the Philippines there is no control or regulations on building these fish pins. As a result, the more populated areas of the Philippines near the water are over fished and are subject to hazards of Red Tide or too much algae.
