We’ve written previously about Keralalites’ love for fish. However, eating it is only half the story; how it enters into people’s lives is another part of it. Here we’ll share how daily life starts for many locals in a fishing town.
Fishermen usually leave their nets in the water overnight and come back in the morning with prayers in their heart for a good catch. Often luck is with them and their prayers are answered, primarily due to the healthy waters along Kerala’s coastline.
Vehicles are waiting on the docks and jetties with boxes of ice waiting for the fishermen to return. The fresh catch is then taken to the local fish markets for sale as well as to various industries for packaging for export.
