Beabag (traditional fish/shrimp trap)

The beabag is a traditional fish and shrimp trap made of rattan strips and bamboo. The cage is about 1 meter long, cigar-shaped, with one end larger than the other. Inside the large end is a cone-shaped trap made of bamboo slats to allow the fish to enter but not to escape.

This traditional implement is still being used by some Mamanwa communities near Lake Mainit in Agusan del Norte and Surigao del Norte and by Manobo communities near the Agusan River.
