3. Portable traps

3.1. Bubu (Fish pot/trap)
     This gear is usually made of chicken wire mesh and set up near coral reefs in the open sea (see Figure 23). The usual size for pots is 1.8 m x 0.9 m x 0.9 m; and it has a mouth to trap entering fish. Fishermen visit their pots once a week. The catch is usually composed of snappers, groupers, etc. Other versions of pots used in the rivers or streams are usually made of woven bamboo with the mouth facing the oncoming flow of water. The pot opening or mouth is made of a non-return valve shaped like a cone with a big outer opening and smaller inner end to keep the entrap fish from escaping.
