(121108) -- JAKARTA, Nov. 8, 2012 (Xinhua) -- A harpooner on a traditional whale-hunting boat sharpens his spear near the island of Lamalera in Indonesia's East Nusa Tenggara Province, Oct. 30, 2012. The decrease of whale population in the waters of Indonesia's Lamalera in recent years has been a concern to the locals as they rely on the whale capture to support economic needs, which now have turned to dolphin and shark capture.
