Artisanal fishery in Gambia: Post fishing practices

Credit: Peter K Mendy (Gambia)

The photos show usual practices done after the fishing trip by artisanal fishermen. Usually, after loading their catch of fish, fishermen draw out their fishing boats out of the water to the shore. Also, fishermen inspect and look for damages which could have occurred to their nets. In such case, they sit on the shore and repair their nets themselves or pay others who have the experience in net repair to do that for them.
