When the fishermen start to make a strange sound such as guttural by tapping with paddle, bamboo stick on the side of canoes, the dolphin will come and show their tail to cooperate for their fishing and chase to boat closely. (Dolphin and fishermen communicate each other by audio visual signals for their cooperation fishing). Dolphins will show their tails on the vertical position to stop the boat and beat the water surface by the tails to capture the fish by casting their net quickly.

A few minutes later, the fishermen will get abundant fishes inside the net and they will throw some fishes to feed the dolphins as their share of cooperation fishing.
