The article investigates the attitudes of fishers who use illegal fishing methods in the Calamianes Islands. While studies of illegal fishing have typically concentrated on why it continues to flourish, questions remain unanswered about who specifically participates in illegal fishing, and what their broader motivations might be. The article extends understandings of illegal fishing by considering it as a way in which young men gain status through the demonstration of their masculinity.
