In the shore areas
Fish are abundant
And it is everyones diet.
Still there are many of them
Wasted if not used.
Expensive and difficult transportation
So they are not able to be eaten fresh elsewhere.

Fermentation and brining is one of the preservation method.
Pindang we call it ..
Interestingly it is kept in enamel pan,
Something rarely seen in the city I live.
Tradition values the people.
