Farming Fish

In a village called Togori on the Island of Maikra in the Solomon Islands. There is a boy named Richard Bekaraifaka. When their weather is fine and the sea is calm, people go out to sea with their canoes and catch some fish for their families. Richard Bekaraifaka has an uncle called Isaiah who is the chief of their village , he decided that he could make the water from the river flow through the plastic pipes from one pool to the other the back into the river. People thought that he was crazy but they built it anyway. It took to make the pool 1 and a half years! When the pools were finished they had to join the pipes up together with the river. One of Richards favourite jobs was feeding the fish with larvae and white ants. The fish go CRAZY OVER IT!!! They were all so proud of themselves because they can go catch their fish anytime they want.
