Description

The cormorant fishermen of south China use cormorant birds and lanterns to fish. They work at night and use the lanterns to attract fish to their boats. Once the fish get close to the boats the Cormorant birds dive in the water and catch the fish. A string is tied around the birds neck so they can't sallow it. They bring the fish back to the fishermen who then remove it from the birds neck.
