The inserted pictures show a sample of the daily life of the Bozo and Somono fishermen who live in Kirango, a village located on the bank of the Niger river, near the Markala dam, about 35 km north-east of the city of Ségou. The inhabitants are Bamanan (farmers) and Bozo/Somono (fishermen).

These fishing activities shown in the attached photos show the fisherman upon casting his cast net, a part of the catch. The drying of fishnets, as well as the sun-drying of a part of the fish catch, is shown in one of the pictures.
