The Melanau Fishing Boats
The Melanau people mostly live in the coastal areas of central Sarawak. They are concentrated in the Mukah and Sarikei Division. Many of them are fishermen who supply a large share of the fish needs for the urban population especially in Sibu,Sarikei and Bintulu. Most of their fishing boats are small and they only carry out their fishing activities near to the coasts.
