Sun-drying of fish in South Sudan

The two photos show the process of sun drying of fish in South Sudan. The drying is done on wooden structures, wire or robes. During summer, fish drying may require 3-4 days while a longer period (a week or more) may be required in the fall. Nothing is added to fish during the drying process. The second photo which is taken in the fisherman camp at Bentio shows fish on the ground for refreshing only and not drying. The common dried fish species is Nauk (local name); Heterotis niloticus.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
