Hello all!

This is the atmosphere of the Lhokseumawe pusong reservoir today, because the implementation of the LOCKDOWN period for several months in our area was completely deserted. There was no passing on the reservoir road, there were only a few women looking for oysters contained in the reservoir site, precisely at the water entrance which is connected directly to the high seas.

The activities of these mothers have to be carried out to meet the needs of their families because her husband has not worked for the past few months.

You can see for yourself a woman who is in water at breast height located precisely at the entrance and exit disposal of water that comes from household waste in the city of Lhokseumawe.

In that case, each marine biota including shellfish and oysters breeds in that location, making it easier for housewives who are in locations around the reservoir to always take it.

Oysters and shellfish are very easy to carry by the surrounding community because they are enough to be taken by diving using small nets that have been formed into small containers made of soft-swimming trawl or in the local language referred to as "sawoek".

If what is obtained is a clam, these women only sell it to the traditional market which is accepted by the traders to be made into food such as clam satay.

These shells are referred to as "Geulungkeu Shells" with a round shape in black and brown with stature like other common shells.

Every day these mothers get 15 to 20 kilo grams with the selling price of 7,500.00 rupiah. The results they get are able to finance their exit in the midst of the #stayhome period in the Lockdown state.

Filling days like now has become the most effective thing for these mothers in helping their household economy during their husband's unemployment which has been set by the government for several months.

The husband also does not remain silent in helping his wife to sell the work of his wife in the form of shells to the traditional market for culinary sellers in the form of scallops.

This activity was also carried out by other communities living around the Lhokseumawe pusong reservoir. New jobs have been met by some local communities in anticipation of their economic shortages during the Lockdown.

Thus a brief description of the woman who looks for shellfish in the location of the Lhokseumawe pusong reservoir, hopefully this situation will end quickly and we are all in good health.

Thank you very much
