Cochin, India

Cochin in Southern India is famous for the Chinese Fishing Nets.

This ancient method of fishing is still effective today.

Stones are used as counter-balance to help raise the nets.

It's possible to buy the catch and have them cooked on the spot. As it is a well known tourist attratction, be prepared to haggle over the price..and check the freshness of the catch. Well organised now with small resturants away from the seafront.
