Where Aquarium Fish come from | The REAL NEMO STORY | Sailing Florence – Ep.100

Whilst sheltering from a storm, a chance encounter led to an insight into the risky fishing techniques used on Indonesia’s tropical reefs. We were invited out on a local fishing boat where we were learnt about the crazy reality of fishing for aquarium fish, where they come from, and how they are caught. This is the real finding Nemo. Being invited aboard a local fishing boat by these lovely, friendly fishermen is one of the adventures which will remain in our memories for a long time. Compressor diving or Hookah diving in Indonesia is responsible for many deaths and life changing injuries, the risks are very real. We are amazed at the amount of effort that goes into catching pretty fish from the reef just so that they can be displayed in fish-tanks around the world.

We are a British couple who set off from England in 2016 to fulfill our dream of sailing around the world on our 37ft sail boat, Florence. Along the way we share the live aboard lifestyle with the highs and lows of travelling around the world by boat, our own little tiny house. Boat life out at sea on the ocean and off the grid.
