China has a coastline of 18,000 kilometers. The further thefishermen are away from land, the more dangerous the task. After praying at the Mazu temple, the fishermen will set out. Hainan native, Lin Hongqi, is tocaptain the boat. It’s winter. Diesel, fresh water and food have been loaded onto Lin’s boat. It’s now ready to sail. Of the twenty crew members abroad, all are young or middle age. The decreasing number of fish made fishing much more different. But Lin knows that nature won’t satisfy man all the time. Sometimesman has to take his chance.
Lin catches a wolfish at evening. We can see its emerald green bones after it has been cut open. The fish is tasty enough after simply being boiled. Instant noodles and the fish make for a pleasant supper, but Lin will not be having a relax supper. Fishes are attracted to light. After toiling for two hours, they’ve got nothing but a few jelly fish. It comes as no surprise but the captain is under great pressure. If there’s still fruitless half a month later, Lin will take the responsibility. Mackerel is the main food for the sailors out at sea. The salted fish can be preserved for a long time. Fish heads and tails can be cooked with pickled cabbage into a tasty soup.
