Episode 84: Amis Fishing Net
Over thousands of years, indigenous people who live by the water have developed clever ways to fish. Fish traps, paralysing vines, fish spears and fish glasses are just some of the examples. Although methods are different due to different tribes having different environments, they all express oneness with nature and the knowledge passed down through generations. The Amis fishing net is a round shaped net. The greater the surface area, the more fish it can catch. This episode uses triangle, square, and round nets of the same perimeters and circumference to show that the one with the greatest area is the round net.
