Through my eyes: fishing in Hoi An, Vietnam

IMG_5235

Fishing is one of the more popular ways to make a living for the people of Hoi An – these enormous nets are dropped into the water and left for a while, then brought up (hopefully) full of the beautiful, fresh seafood so coveted by the local restaurants and visitors, making some money for the fishermen to live another few days. Those who can’t afford to set up nets simply fish the old fashioned way.

  1. What a tough way to make a living in what is surely a heavily fished area. I’m watching a TV series called River Monsters (which is old) but it amazes me how many parts of the world rely on fishing and use very basic and often primitive ways to make a living.
