No matter where you are in the Pacific, there’s always something unique about the way in which the sun rises above its golden waves. About a dozen fishermen from the small township of Jinlun, Taiwan step onto the shore. They’re greeted by the ocean’s soft, salty breeze as they make their way to the water with their triangle nets in hand. The fishermen then stand together in a straight line right next to where a small stream meets the ocean. Their lamps light up their nets. Although it seemed like a very original scene at first, there was something all too familiar about it, about the act of fishing itself.
