Squid fishing is one of the big industries on Phu Quoc, and tourists are welcome to try their hand at catching some of these strange animals. Since squid are best caught at night, fishermen head out after dark in their quest. If you want to join them, ask at the desk of your hotel, or contact Phu Quoc Sunny. Lights are dropped in the water to attract the squid, like moths to a flame. An Australian female food blogger who participated in the hunt, Foraging Otaku, wrote: “Squid fishing intrigues me even more as the squid is such a curiously alien-like nocturnal creature with its flashing camouflage skin and suckered tentacles. Needless to say I was as excited as a giddy child going to the Easter Show when I got on the boat and couldn’t wait to start fishing for the critters.”
