Description ; Baan Bo Jed Luk is in Moo 1, Pak Nam Sub-district, La Ngu District, Satun Province. It is adjacent to Andaman Sea. Fishery is the main career of people, followed by merchant. The village is 18 kilometers far from La Ngu District. As it is the rural area, people are kind and help each other, have simple life and close relationship as the family members. They follow religious doctrine strictly. Tok Guru (Islam scholar), who is proficient in religion, teaches Guran. Therefore, people adhere to Islam principle to guide their life.
There are 788 populations, 190 households in Baan Bo Jed. They are Islamic which 90% of them earn a living from fishery using Rue Hua Thong and the tools are seine and bamboo fish trap. They catch aquatic animals such as mackerel, white sand fish, croakers, and octopus at the coast and further to 5 nautical miles. Besides, they make Sai (bamboo fish trap) and seine. When they have to sail, they rely on the natural circumstance while the aquatic animal season determine the tools to be used. Fishery here is one way of conservation; each type of fishing tools are specific for each type of aquatic animal. For example, shrimp seine is only for shrimp catching. This is the hand-to-mouth way of life but they are happy because they live among nature. Some of them do fish farming or shell farm such as grouper, sea bass, potato cod, and mussel. Some buy fish speicies while some cath fishes to the floating basket. Although fishery generates income to people, sometimes the price depends on the aquatic animal market price which is unstable.
During November to December, people grow watermelon for 90 days as the part-time job. During this time, it is the east monsoon period and fewer aquatic animals are caught. The middleman will come to buy the watermelon from people. The famous species are Kinnaree, Jintara, Tang Lai, and Dum Ka, which peole grows based on the customer demand. Kinaree is the most popular one; one watermelon weights 5-7 kilograms with thin shell and sweet taste. The flesh is red and sand texture. It is 8-10 Bath per kilogram. People earn lots of money each year. Some people grows vegetable coupled with watermelon for 6-year such as cucumber, luffa gourd, white gourd, and cow-pea. This is the option to earn more income. Besides, they have their own cow and let it in the grassland; 80 households with 4-5 cows from each one. They form the group with 40 members. Some are merchant who sell oysters to earn income.

History ; It has been told that there was a wandering Morgan fisherman came to a small island which was situated in the south of Andaman sea. He looked for fresh water to drink and this became the story of seven ponds (Jed Bo). However, according to the old people, there are three legends which cannot be proved which one is true.
He searched for water and found seven ponds. The first one was big, called Bo Phor, and the rest were Bo Mae and Bo Luk in the smaller size. It is believed that this is the sacred place that what is asked for will come true. Some sing and dance while some offer white chicken to thank you when they got what they asked for. Another story told that when the fisherman needed water, he dug one pond and used it. Until his child discussed with him and each child dug one pond next to that of the father’s, so the number grew to seven ponds.
Another legend says that when the fisherman arrived at this island, he dug the pond. The first pond was salt water and could not be used. He kept digging until the seventh pond, which was the fresh water, that was useable.
Before World War II, there was a man who was born in Baan Ta Lo named Abdul Rohman Pakbara. He was a merchant who contacted with Penang to sell flour, soap, and sugar. He came to stayed in this area. Since he had knowledge about Islam, he built the mosque and taught this skill to other fishermen. Later, he pursued his relatives to come. For this reason, when the number of people increased, they looked for other places to move to. In the reign of King Rama VII, he was appointed as the Khun (presently a village headman) and was given the surname Khun Bara Bureerak. He ruled over this place and named it followed the symbol, Talaka Tuyoh, which is Malayu language (Talaka means Bo (pond) / Tuyoh means seven). However, the name was quite difficult so it was changed to Thai language as Baan Bo Jed Luk and has been used until today.
Khun Bara Buriruk had four daughters who had no heir. Thus, Burirak family disappeared. Currently, his fourth daughter is alive and lives in Baan Bo Jed Luk; she is Sainun Thinkabang.
