The dema fish trap is a traditional fishing technique used in Zanzibar, made from sticks, poles, and palm fronds. It is a semi-circular trap with an entrance for fish to enter, but they struggle to find their way out. It is placed in shallow waters during low tide and left undisturbed to catch fish. Fishermen periodically check and collect the caught fish, which can be consumed locally or sold. The dema trap is a sustainable method, reducing bycatch and ecological impact, and preserving fish stocks. There is a recent interest in reviving and promoting this technique to support communities and preserve cultural heritage while ensuring sustainability.
