The Story of A Big Fish - The Story Unfolds (Part 2)

Posted by shloke 19 November 2009
I had a hard time composing the second half of my story. I reminded myself not to be judgmental in my writings. Earlier (Part 1), I had put in clear words - THE CAUSE OF DEATH IS UNKNOWN TO ME. Is it "POACHED?" "KILLED?" or "DEATH BY NATURAL CAUSES?" I have no idea.

The following sequence of events might trigger even more questions or perhaps anger. First, the big fish was cut into medium chunks. Next, a powerful mechanized chain hauled the meat to the fishing platform. Finally, the meat was packed into container of ice cubes.

Looking back, it was kind of odd. Nobody ask questions. People look and whispered. In the end I chickened out and left the platform after snapping some pictures. That's the end of the story - The Story of A Big Fish.

I will let the pictures do the talking.

"What about the fishing town?" you might ask. More to come - The fishing industry in Sekinchan.

    As big as a mini van.

    Hmmm...I'm not sure whether global warming is the actual cause. Lately, big fishes were stranded in many shoreline across the world.

    In Malaysia, we are still far behind in terms of lowering down global warming. Our carbon emission is getting higher by the minute.

    Also, deforestation is contributing to atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    Sigh...we need to do something! I wonder Malaysians are aware about the long term effects of carbon emission.

    Hi! Welcome to my photo & travel blog!

    I did not expect to see that in Sekinchan. It was surreal!

    Quite a number of them were stranded on the coastline or accidentally trapped on the fishermen net.

    Whale sharks are edible. Check out this article:

    Cheers!

  10. What a catch! and you're very lucky to be there at the right time to capture the moments. I wonder whether this catch made the headline at that time?
