    The traditional and home industries in the fishing village is related to seafood. Extra quantity from the good harvest is used to make salted fish. This industry depend on hot and direct sunlight in the drying process. On, sunny day, you would see hundreds of wooden shelves topped with salted fishes by the road side in their drying process. You can buy them in the evening while the collecting. Buying direct from the producer is cheaper. They are very happy to sell to you, if they are not too busy during the day.
