The Arawaks – Most genius fishermen EVER
Fishermen used nets, hooks, spears and the remora to catch turtles. This method showed some ingenuity on the part of the Amerindians. The remora is a fish with suction cups on the back of its head, which it uses to cling to larger fish. A long cotton line was tied tightly to the remora's tail and was gently let out. The remora would dive for the turtle (or fish) and attach itself to its unsuspecting victim. The remora and its captive were then carefully pulled back to the canoe.
