Now, Stanito has never fished nor tried to catch any kind of sea animal in her life so it came like a “Wow, how simple” expression once she saw the basic materials that are needed: clay jars.
They are called Zriba or else known as Octopus Trap. Here is one guy making one:
The clay jars are supposed to be hanged in a thread like the photo above. Drop them offshore and leave them overnight. Octopus will try and crawl into them. The following morning, if you’re lucky, you’ll find an octopus curled inside as Octopus inevitably will enter almost any spot that provides shelter.
The pots are normally set overnight attached to longlines with up to as many pots as you need. They are hauled back up again in the morning.
