Asia's oceans, lakes and rivers provide for a substantial part of people's diets.
Ingenious contraptions and clever devices have been constructed to gather a bountiful catch or simply to ensure food on the table.
Nets come in all colours, shapes and sizes, rods short and long, bamboo traps, small enough to hold a handful of river crabs or oversized to capture a catfish of monstrous proportions.
