This fascinating video shows how South Pacific islanders from the Solomon Islands archipelago use webs spun by a particular species of spider to catch a particular species of fish. If you have adequate wifi support, you should watch this full-screen in high definition.
When I lived in Palau I remember learning about the kite fishing that the islanders did, but I did not remember them using a web. Fascinating.
Supercool!! Needlefish are great in ceviche...
The spider and web shown appears to be a Cyrtophora sp. Earlier literature on traditional fishing in Pacific islands using spider webs usually point to the webs of Nephila spiders.
I found this video amazing,ive never seen such an interresting way to fish.
