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.

The fishing nets of cochin will be the last ones to exit and it is also slowly moving ot of the shores .once used as the maor fish catching technique,it has come to a position that the people using them are forced to stop using it ,as the catch is poor and the maintenance cost has come high

Visited the chinese fishing nets near Fort Kochi & Mattanchery. Very simple mechanism, but very effective. Some of the fisher men, allow you to try your hand at fishing. Worth a photo opportunity.

The Chinese Fishing Nets in Kochi are stunning. Watch the local fishermen lower them into the water and then harvest their catch when they pull them up again. The fish is sold directly in the adjacent street market and couldn't possibly be fresher! They are simply beautiful and tranquil and well worth seeing!

So much rubbish and pollution ruins the area! Very sad to see.. The backdrop of industry is also not very pretty.. They need to clean the beach and front waters up!

You can see a number of the nets whilst walking along the shore. Interesting to watch the locals catch their fish for the day and then sell them.
