Indonesia – Small-scale coastal fishing in Indonesia can benefit women nutritionally and economically, but in some areas, despite plentiful fish stocks, undernutrition is prevalent, often due to a lack of financial resources and societal taboos surrounding its consumption.
While some women do not eat these species due to allergies or fears about the potential for mercury poisoning, for others it is considered taboo for breastfeeding women to consume parrotfish, rabbitfish, sea urchins and shellfish, in some cases because they are said to cause upset stomachs in breastfeeding children.
These taboos are passed down the generations, from mother to mother, in such a manner that a woman who eats these foods is said to be disobedient to her mother, Gibson said, explaining that mothers delay the introduction of taboo species until the child has ceased breastfeeding, eats un-mashed rice – the food staple in Indonesia – or is walking.
