On the Chinese fishing nets itself

Passing the Chinese fishing nets again and while taking photos of the nets in operation from afar, I was waved over to join them. Only 7 nets left now. Anchovies, mullet, tiger fish, cat fish, white snapper. Best caught on the incoming high tide.

January and February are good months. Now only 3kgs are often caught in the 6 hours. It's low season. Fish are sold at auction.

With 6 families to support, I wasn't surprised that he wanted some money. Rupees or dollars or Euros.
