Film Friday: A Day of Community Fishing

Fish are a vital source of food and income for people in Lao PDR, but the highly practical activity of fishing can also be fun. Community fishing days are sometimes held as village fundraisers, and provide a chance for people to come together, express their cultural identity, and pass traditions from one generation to the next. The staff in our Lao office filmed this video of a community fishing day held near the capital city of Vientiane, and it seemed to be an event where people outnumbered the fish!
