Fisherwoman transports cart full of tuna that has just come in on boats in Zhapo, China. Zhapo is primarily a huge Jellyfish fishery, the entire town slings laundry tubs of gelatinous mucous-like-jellyfish if it is cloudy day and they can see the masses of jelly from their boats. There is also a reef fish trade here. Initially reef fish only came from the South China Sea, but transport developed and fish now come from all over S.E. Asia. The whole reef fish trade crashed with the 97-98 HK stock market crash. LRF trade is directly linked to economy. With China coming online financially the trade is booming. These fish are often used for celebratory meals in Hong Kong, but in Guangzhou the fish are so cheap and the apartments are so small that many people eat out… And the stereotype is that there is lots of food left on the table. Often a fish is popular because of its color… more than its taste.Buy This Image
