Barona is a kind of bamboo made equipment for fishing used as kind of fence. It is generally used after the flood season. When the water level saturates in the river and the water from the beels flows towards the deeper areas, then the fishermen enclose the water channels at certain low-lying places with these fences. It is done to prevent the in-coming fishes from escaping back into the rivers.
