Collection Collector:
Bellis, Tom  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
General:
Note: Barbasco fishing involves taking poison plants, pounding the vines to loosen the poison, and then washing them into lagoons. Smaller fish in the lagoons die from the poison, but larger fish are stunned and rise to the surface, making it easier for them to be either scooped with nets or caught with bows and arrows. The poison does not affect their edibility for humans. (p. 151.)
