Photographer's Note

We were on a boat for 5 days in the Komodo national park, and we needed some fresh fish. When we saw 3 fishermen boats, we started to approach them. And they came away !

We showed them a white tee-shirt to indicate that we were not pirates (some of them in the Java Sea...). And they accepted to come and sell us their day catch. Except that... they had manta rays... and for divers, it is not acceptable if we can get something else : we have paid for small tuna.

They had 8 small manta rays, they could sell this fish approx. 8 Euros. And they can live 4-5 days with this...

Please do not judge them : they need to eat. And manta rays are fish.

In the background you can see one of the numerous volcanoes in Indonesia.
