Sulfuric Fire Fishing ,Taiwan

Taiwan has a number of fishing traditions that are slowly dying out. The Fisheries Agency is now showcasing these traditions as distinctive tourist attractions to keep them alive, whether using sulfuric fire to catch fish or riding oxcarts to sea to harvest oysters.

Fishermen use a sulfuric fire to light up the pitch black night. Drawn by the light, scaled sardines congregate and ripple the water’s surface. This traditional Taiwanese fishing method has been around for more than 70 years, but the only place where it’s still used is in the Jinshan area on Taiwan’s northern coast.
