Fishing with Fowl

Huang Yunba and his cormorants raft on the Lijiang River in Yangshuo in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on May 24, 2006. People in China have been fishing with cormorants for at least 2,ooo years. Modern methods have mostly replaced the birds in commercial fishing, but some remain in service as a tourist attraction.
