Người zân dịa fương ỡ New Caledonia (Tây Nam Thái Bình Zương) kó một lối săn ká thật dặc biệt, dộc dáo ..trông rất thễ thao, dẹp mắt: zùng lao với dầu ống tre dập zẹp & mỡ rộng dễ bắt ká..
 
Khi thấy một con ká lội zưới nước, người thợ săn fóng toàn thân mình theo con ká dễ fóng lao vào mình cá..
 
Với cái dầu ống tre dập zẹp và mỡ rộng, con ká bị kẹp vào các răng ống tre/nứa.. Con ká không bị thương.

With perfect precision, this spear fisherman leaps into the air in a spectacular display of a bizarre spear hunting technique.
The fisherman shows off his incredible skill on the Loyalty Islands Province in New Caledonia where the sea clan live almost entirely on fish and other sea creatures.
However, despite the odd way of catching his food, fisherman Albert is just showing a normal way of life on the islands in the south west Pacific Ocean.

Photographer Stephane Ducandas, 41, who also lives on the islands, said be believes the fishing technique is unique.
He said: ‘I have never seen this type of fishing anywhere else. In New Caledonia, some prawn fisherman use Assegai (a spear or pole-type weapon).
‘But jumping like this with that incredible precision was absolutely amazing and typical of Loyalty Island.’
Mr Ducandas used a camera with special underwater equipment to capture the incredible moments.
He said: ‘This is the kind of subject that most interests me photographically. It's all about the moment - one special light, one special relationship between one person and myself.
‘I'm most interested in photographing human stories and lives. When I meet with someone, I share his world, his job, his family and his life before I get out the camera.’
