Equipped with only a clay jug, a stick and a trident, the fishermen of the Tunisian Islands Kerkennah set out on the ocean.

Already during the era of Carthaginian general Hannibal, who spent his years in exile on the African archipelago in 190 B.C., fishermen already used this successful trapping method. Clay jugs attract cuttlefish seeking shelter. These archaic vessels are traps: every morning after the sunrise the Tunisian fishermen catch an abundance of prey.
