A lone fisherman tends to his nets on the outskirts of Banda Aceh. Seventy per cent of Aceh’s economy is dependent on fishing or fish farming. The tsunami destroyed 32 of the province’s 72 fishing ports. Aid agencies are providing thousands of fishermen with boats and nets to re-establish their livelihoods. Each boat provides employment and food for several families.
