Gambia artisanal fishery: Tanji landing site

Credit: Peter K Mendy (Gambia)

The photos show Tanji fish landing site which is considered the largest and busiest landing site in Gambia. The photos shows fishing boats while off-landing fish. Usually, some boats land with their catches in the morning while others land in the evening.  Once boats land, people from different surrounding villages and towns were around to find fish. As seen in one of the photos, the crowd of people around the boat involves boat crews (fishermen) who carry fish to the shore or truck.
