Located in the northern part of Belitung, Tanjung Binga village in Bangka Belitung Islands is known as the country’s biggest producer of salted fish. The villagers, most of whom are descendants of Buginese from Makassar in South Sulawesi, have sailed the sea for years earning a living from salted and dried anchovies, among other fish types.
