The photo shows the landing of artisanal fishing boats at the landing of Ambowe north of Libreville, Gabon. There are twenty docks and around Libreville. These canoes have an average length that ranges between 4-8 meters. Much of these canoes are motorized. The white objectives shown on the boats are old freezers which are used by fishermen to keep their fish while fishing. Also, fishermen secure their requirements of ice upon starting their fishing trip. Depending on the size of the boat, the fishing crew could be 2 or 3 per boat.
