Composition and lighting on this is excellent Fred, the shadow detail on the face is what is known as Rembrant lighting creating the triangle on the cheek, most photographers find this hard to achieve in studio conditions, you have done this with natural light my friend, be proud of your excellent capture!

The fish is called Smooth-belly sardinella or Tabagak is what we call and make a salted sundried fish. They used a pump boat or "Bangka" a type of outrigger boat.
