like a skilled Venetian Gondoliers.

  1. Thee are seaweed farmers, harvesting several types of seaweed, which are sold for the production of agar-gar, the jelly used in so many foods and other products. Seaweed farming can be a useful alternative income generating activity for poor coastal people. It can be more lucrative in Bali than growing crops on poor soils on land. However, there is a question as to how much damage is done to the reefs when they are covered by floating frames of seaweed – most of the coastal waters off the north coast of Nusa Penida (a smaller island SE of Bali) are covered by seaweed farms .
