Fish bombing is a form of destructive fishing and is illegal in Malaysia. It involves the use of explosives. These explosives are normally homemade using simple artificial chemicals derived from fertilisers mixed with kerosene in a bottle. To activate it, the fuse is lit and the bottle dumped into the water. When the charge explodes, it causes shock waves which kill or stun fish. The fish then float to the surface or sink to the bottom. This enables the blast fishers to easily collect them.
