Though the village of Inarajan is located close to the waters of Inarajan
Bay, the seaside location is not necessarily preferable, as several
of our guides explain. Bill discusses gathering crabs, seaweed
Bill and Therese discuss the merits of different swimming
locations in Inarajan: the black sand beach of Inarajan Bay, the beach
at Bear Rock (Agfåyan Bay), and the remarkable pools constructed on
a bit of tidal flat just outside the village proper.
On the Reef
The reefs provide a number of fishing opportunities. Joe, Bill
and Earl discuss the different types of reef fish, and the different
techniques for catching them.
Very little fishing is done from boats on Guam, beyond the reef. Anne
explains why. However, Inarajan has a strong tradition for netting large
schools of mackerel that enter the bay. This practice is an important
cultural feature of Inarajan.
