  Cormorant Fishing
by vincentf

This is an amazing method of catching freshwater fish from the Li River. The fisherman utilizes the birds to catch fish with their beaks when the birds dive into the water. However, when the bird catches the fish in its beaks, they are unable to swallow the fish. Instead, it is in its mouth and spitted out upon its return to the fisherman's bamboo raft.

Directions: On the Li River.
