One is the activity called Bapongka (babangi), that is, the Bajo fishing activities conducted in groups for several weeks or even months using large sized boats called leppa or sopek. Bapongka has common values that can be interpreted as an attempt to tighten silaturrahmi (brotherhood relationship) among family members, as the activities are generally carried out by involving the family (wife and children) and also fellow fishermen, implemented by way of a group to use 3 to 4 boats set off hand in hand.
