Anambas; Air Sena and Breeding of Napoleon Fish

img_20160513_154855After lunch in Palmatak, we continued our last trip to Air Sena. It is a place for breeding fish napoleon. Napoleon fish worth considering. One kilogram rewarded more than one million rupiah. This breeding of Napoleon fish is  located in  Air sena village, District of Central Siantan, Anambas Islands, Riau Islands.

There are many breeding pond there. The pond was measuring approximately 4 x 4 meters with a depth of about two meters. On the sidelines of net cages, there is a small road made of planks that can be used to pass the time feeding or check the condition of the cages. The cages and the nets must always be monitored because of its location at sea.

I can not imagine if there is an animal that fell into the pond, animal body may be torn to shreds. Because of this, we are quite careful when walking in the small streets.

Sightings of the fish were not so terrible, the dominant color is white although there are some parts of his body were a little black. But it does not look so scary. But if we look at it again, when the fish opens its mouth there are pointy and sharp teeth.

Very interesting to see the fish breeding. There, we see the movement of the local economy from the sea Anambas. Apart from the problems now faced by the owners of the captivity. I hope there are many good things that result from these efforts and preservation of Napoleon fish and the grouper.

The weather is very hot but cloudy day also will come. This is the end of our island hopping trip. If you want to visit Anambas. You can call Eyster at her facebook, Thank you Eyster, 3 great snorkling guides, and 2 our drivers with his ship. Thank you for these experiences and our trips.
