‘Pool to table’: on the leisurely challenge of indoor shrimp fishing in Taiwan

Taiwan is one of the most densely populated islands on Earth: its 36,000 square kilometres are home to more than 23 million people. Historically, fishing and seafood have been central to Taiwanese culture, but with the country’s economy and population increasingly urbanised, many in Taiwan have sought a new, leisurely and convenient way of connecting with the sea: indoor shrimping. In this short video, the director Tim Cheng visits one of Taiwan’s many urban shrimp pools, where patrons go to catch their next meal – or just for the relaxation of it all.
