I don't know where else one can see this unique way to fish. I found it a fascinating way for those people to make some money in the off season. I loved just strolling around the park to people watch. There is much more going on in that park to enjoy. Worth the visit.

The nets are unusual but the beach is heavily littered and dirty...surely if they want to promote this as a tourist attraction they could make the effort to clean up the place...very disappointing .

The place basically has a dirty beach and hordes of fishing boats and nets..For someone who hasnt every been to a coastal area ever, this might seem somewhat interesting. Not my cup of tea.

The Chinese fishing nets sight that everyone talks about in Kochi is a bit overhyped. The nets can be found hanging from the boats on the beach side and its not very clean over there on the beach. Its advisable to visit the Jew Town or other attractions in Kochi

Sadly the Chinese fishing nets are surrounded by rubbish and this some how detracts from the ambience . It was interesting to see the fishermen using them and there are also lots examples outside of Fort cochin .

Amazing technique for lifting fish out of the water with nets. A reminder of how things were before pollution, overpopulation, and local and offshore overfishing. Along the trash-strewn shoreline, the nets dip down, weighed down by a man walking to the end of the boom, and then return up as he walks back with the haul....trash, and a few unwary... More
