Photographer's Note

The Chinese fishing nets of Fort Kochi in the Kochi (Cochin), in the Indian State of Kerala.
they are fixed land installations for an unusual form of fishing. Huge mechanical contrivances hold out horizontal nets of 20 m or more across. Each structure is at least 10 m high and comprises a cantilever with an outstretched net suspended over the sea and large stones suspended from ropes as counterweights at the other end. Each installation is operated by a team of up to six fishermen.
