As you can see, this fisherman is very happy with his catch of the day because turtles are a delicacy on an Indonesian menue. These are leatherback turtles (obviously protected animals) but on a remote island rules run differently. The fishermen don't understand why they should not eat them. There no way to convince them otherwise - we tried many times.
