This paper is an introduction to traditional and modern methods and gear used by Indonesian fishers, whether by angling, spearing, netting, trapping, stupefying or other means. My aim is to help lexicographers to move beyond simple descriptions such as ‘a kind of net’ or ‘a kind of fish trap’ and toward definitions which are clear, accurate and informative.
