Our old generation depends highly on fishing as a way of supporting their families in the olden days. They used to go out fishing twice a day, early morning and in the evening or during night time. When they return from fishing, they prepared their fish and bring to the market for selling, or they have to sit beside the road so people can see and come to buy their fish. Some families will share their fish with their neighbors, it is a common way in Tuvalu where you have to share some things you get with your sisters and brothers who lives near your home. As in nowadays, less families will have their own boat or canoe which they can out fishing, many of the families will buy fish from other families or from the market.
