The photo shows a typical artisanal fishery practice in Lake Peten Itzá, Guatemala. The fishing crew involves two fishermen who both cooperate in setting the fishing seine. Afterwards, a fisherman of the two who stays in the fishing boat (not shown in the photo) beats water surface using a pole to scare the fish in the location towards the seine. The seine is pulled to enable the second fisherman to collect captured fish in the shown container.
