  tum (ih-joo)

 

Thailand

A tum is a local fish trap made from woven bamboo strips. There are several different models and a similar type with a wider mouth above is more specifically called ih-joo. Yet, despite these subtle distinctions, both names may be used interchangeably, while the term tum is also used in a less specific way for either type.
