The trap fishing in Baie du Cap
The trap fishery is used in the lagoon and off the reef to catch fish and shellfish. The baits used -goemon or arches of arms - attract small fish which, themselves, attract larger ones. Once in the trap, they can not escape. Traps are placed at strategic points and can bring many fish to experienced fishermen. They can also catch beautiful lobsters or squid crabs with sea urchins as bait.
