Traditional methods hang on in Kosrae, Micronesia, where fishermen in outrigger canoes make use of palm-frond torches and long-handled nets. The light attracts curious fish—which end up in the anglers' nets.
The island of Kosrae (the easternmost of the Caroline Islands) is part of the state of Kosrae, one of four that make up Micronesia. The western Pacific nation is home to just over 100,000 people.
