the fish landing

the fish landing

This is one of the activities, while in Kerala, one simply is not allowed to miss. Since ages the fisher men go out to the sea, in teams of 8 – 20 people in a traditional vessel, where no winches, or other modern equipments are used. Every morning after the sunrise dozens of boats from a long coastal stretch head for the same spot, called the fish landing.

At the shore they are awaited by family, friends, workers and fish merchants. There is so much activity once the boats hit the shore. Fish is carried from the boats in baskets and right auctioned on the beach. Finally the fisher men relish their long desired cup of tea, start repairing their nets and discuss the adventures of last night. The fish landing is one of the activities done from the Marari Beach Resort. (www.cghearth.com)
