Earning A Living As A Fisherman

Although the younger generation are uncomfortable to be fishermen or out at sea, this occupation continues to be undertaken by the older generation. It is already entrenched in their souls and this occupation also takes care of their daily living or pays for their children’s education to higher education. To them, the sea is their second home and they are never afraid of being tossed by the waves.

In Kuala Linggi, fishing is part and parcel of the villagers’ lives. There are two categories of fishermen in Kampung Kuala Linggi; the deep-sea and coastal fishermen. Coastal fishermen are basically traditional fishermen who fish near the coast while deep-sea fishermen go further offshore.
