The photo shows a fishing camp on the premise of Blue Nile River (Roseires Reservoir).  In fishing camp, fishermen collect their fish and sell it as fresh fish to the traders. Fishermen also process other fish species especially African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) into dried fish; the latter is used in the preparation of a popular stew dish named “Kajaik”. Some other fish species are salted as a means of preservation. The salted species include Hydrocynus spp, Labeo spp and Alestes spp.
