Bagasbas Beach, Daet, Camarines Norte

Though it looks as if the fisherfolk of Bagasbas in Daet, Camarines Norte are practicing social distancing, this “blocking” has been the practice here for many years.

Fishnets would have been laid from shore to the deeper sea at midnight. As the skies lighten in the morning, the nets — and the catch — are pulled in by members of the community. Everyone who participates in the pull-in gets a share, good for the family’s lunch for the day.
