Even though Chichewa is the language of this 9-min video, visitors who are not Chichewa speakers can become acquainted with the fishery activities in Lake Malawi. This may include the traditional fishing boats (rowe and motorized), fishing fleet and gears. An interesting observation is carrying pressurized kerosene lanterns. Fishermen are using these lanterns during night fishing to attract fish to their nets. The video show some activities that take place in the fishing community including sun-drying of fish as well as the net making.
