Not ‘Gone Fishing’

Bad Weather is Affecting Bali’s Supply of Fresh Fish

(1/14/2013) Extreme weather conditions battering Bali’s shores over the past several weeks have not only destroyed homes via flooding and shore abrasion, but have kept local fishermen ashore.

Bisnis Bali reports that fishermen in Bali have been forced to stay on land by large waves and heavy rains. As a result, the amount of fish available for purchase at local markets has declined dramatically, with fish supplies now being shipped overland from Java to supplement the meager catches caught by the few fishermen bold enough to go to sea in Bali.

The reduced amounts of seafood still available for purchase are being sold at prices that are between Rp. 3,000-Rp. 5,000 (US$0.30 –US$-0.50) higher than normal.

Bisnis Bali predicts that this situation will persist until March or April, the traditional end of the rainy season.
