Go fishing!


The Tuyuka men do a lot of fishing. Fish are their main source of protein. They eat more fish than meat.

The Tuyuka have many sorts of fishing equipment. These include timbó, rods for lifting fish out of the water, pens to keep live fish in, and different types of fish traps called matapi, jequi and caiá. They also use industrially-made equipment such as metal hooks and nylon fishing lines.
