We saw Chinese fishing net in fort Cochi near Vasco the gama Church. It was a different experience to see the Chinese net , but the localite charged any amout of money just to show its operation. So tourist need to be careful. Even coconut water was charge Rs. 35 per peice.

Great to see how they fished and still are fishing with this old method. Fresh fish along the boardwalk to buy and have cooked at local restaurants, although we did not do that.

My tour guide explained that it was a huge mechanical contraption... More

Fab to see at sunset, we took a boat trip to see them from the water and it was well worth it. Seeing them from the land was ok but a bit smelly and dirty, plus get your camera out and they all want some money for it.

Watch the nets be pulled up only takes a few minutes. Lots of people watching and buying fish. A few small vendors selling trinkets.
