The photo shows from a distance a traditional boat which is locally named “Bongolu” that operates in Blue Nile River (Roseires Reservoir-Blue Nile State). The boat is used for collecting fish from fishing camps and could be used for transportation during flood seasons. This boat is equipped with 40-hp out-board engine. The fishing gears which are commonly used in these boats are gill nets with different mesh sizes, long line, traps and seine nets.
