    Cormorant fishing is an age-old art spanning 1300 years,; is practiced  in China and Japan  (as well as a few other countries).  Dressed in traditional costume, the fishermen ride on small bamboo rafts lined with Cormorant birds.  On the raft, lit by a simple lamp, the Cormorant fishermen of the Li River (Lijiang River) paddle out slowly and then use a pole to encourage the birds into the water, where they dive for fish.  [1]
