Just before touching down Taipei's international airport, some sporadic lights floating along the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean puzzled me. Few days later, on my way returning from chasing 9 Black-faced Spoonbills, the same view I saw from the sky manifested in front of my eyes! "What are those boats doing there at this crepuscular time?" Later I found out these seiners equipped with high intensity white light to attract spawning squid aggregated in the shallow, sandy bottom of coastal waters.
