Fishing in Goa
Goa is famous for diverse geographical features, multiplicity of culture, historical and religious places etc. Above all, we come across the older traditions and the modernity here at the same time.
Fishing is an important act in Goa. A good number of fishermen are actively involved in this work. In fact fish is a must for the majority of Goan people. They are born for fish. Many families in Goa survive on fishing. Fishermen catch fish with nets and sometimes with naked hands. They often ride the trawlers to reach deep into the sea.
Mr. Chandan D. N. Gaonkar of Panaji, Goa spent his time on Miramar, Caranzalem, Campal, Ribandar beaches for last few months and aimed at the activities of Goan fishermen. His effort has resulted into some good photographs. He has sent us a few of them for our delight. Please have a look.
