Artisanal fishery in Sao Tome and Prince (Canoes fishing boats)

Credit: Gabriel de Labra (Spain)

Around 35% of the artisanal fishermen in Sao Tomé  fish in bigger wood canoes (as shown in the photos) with crews of 10-20 people and only around 5% uses fibreglass boats. Both of them uses outboard motors and are mostly purse seiners, catching mainly small pelagics.

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.
