IT might be a rare activity but "fuji" fishing for women of Druadrua Island in Macuata waters is putting food on their tables and earning them money.
According to the women, "fuji" fishing involves using chicken feathers as bait, a style of fishing they've used over the past four years.
Speaking on behalf of the women, Laite Matebalavu said they had proven that the feathers attract fish.
"We usually use big bottles and gallon containers with which we wind our lines and the feathers are attached to the hooks as bait," she said.
"We call this type of fishing the 'fuji' which we have been benefiting from.
"In a day, a woman can catch between 40 and 50 fish, and these are medium to and big-sized fish.
"I don't really know why it's called fuji fishing but all I know is that we are all benefiting from it."
