This picture was taken in Mangochi, Malawi close to Malawi College of fisheries. Fish sun drying is very common in Malawi and it is a preferred method when processing small sized fish like E. Sardella. Consumers like these smaller sized fish not only because of a method that was used to process them but also because small fish is relatively cheaper. This type of processing in Malawi is easy to do and it also by women.
Much of this sun dried fish is locally marketed. But a small quantity finds its way out to neighboring countries and even as far as South Africa.
