Fishing

Fishing was practised by the Andoni and the coastal Ibibio people. Nets, traps, hooks and bamboo fences were the main fishing gear (Ejituwu, 1991: 48-49). A variety of fish were caught. These were sold fresh, or after they had been smoked, in local or long distance markets (Ibid.). The Andoni people, both men and women, were, and still are, fully engaged in fishing. The men use nets, traps and bamboo fences as fishing gear and harvest their fishing grounds or wander into the high seas for long periods, catching various grades and types of fish. The women confine themselves to the small creeks and the mangrove swamps, catching crayfish and lobsters.

 

Fishing Methods

   
1. Casting net: weighted with lead or broken pottery; thrown from a canoe and gathered by pulling the string, which is strung along the opening.  Casting net
2. Drag net with floats (wood, calabash, etc.): spread out at night and drawn every half hour or so to remove fish caught in it.  Drag net with floats (wood, calabash, etc.)
3. Bamboo trap: placed on a sand bank at low tide-
in such a way that the high tide covers it and the receding water leaves fish trapped inside.
 

Bamboo trap

4. Bamboo stick fence: erected on sandy bars when covered by high water, directs bigger fish into bamboo traps (a, b) as the water runs out to the ocean.  Bamboo stick fence
(after Cheesman, 1932; and Jeffreys, 1966).
