How do people use coral reefs for food?

During Coral Live 2015, the team were guests of the community in Com, a village at the far eastern tip of Timor-Leste, learning more about how they use the reef for food and livelihoods. During the day, the men go out in their fishing boats, but in the early morning, when the tide is out, whole families emerge from their houses and walk out onto the reef flat to scour the nooks and crannies for marine invertebrates.
