Fort Kochi Fishing Nets

These fishing nets are beautiful and photogenic, but i didn't really see them catch that many fish. It takes like 5 guys to drop these huge nets into the water, and then upon pulling them back up; there was like 3 fish in the nets. Perhaps i was there on a bad day. Anyway; they are called Chinese fishing nets, believed to have been introduced by Chinese traders in the early 1300s.
