Sea Warrior

Sea Warrior

Inggo after an afternoon fishing shift in the coast of Dancalan in Bulusan.

Looking very much like a sea warrior, Inggo is in his element every time he’s out at sea. ‘Parapadagat’ is how he calls himself and his fellow fishermen in Bulusan. It is a more forceful term than the simple translation of ‘fisherman’. It means a man who embraces the sea as his ally and only means of survival.

His fish catch from around a dozen of bobo fish traps spread strategically in choice fishing locations in this fishing area of Dancalan  feed his family and lots of spare catch for his wife to sell at the town’s poblacions.
