The fishery of mullet in Lake Bardawil amounted 1087 tons in 2012 and so is considered –by far- the leading finfish species in lake catch. As shown in one of the photos, five boats are involved in mullet fishery and operated by a total of about 15 fishermen. The two 6-meter leading boats carry the fishing gears while the remaining three boats of about 4-5 meters contribute to the fishing activities. Reeds are used in making the fishing gears.
