Lice Pickers


Fishermen of Kochi

Sun rises over backwaters near Cherai  Beach.

Two fishermen are at work.

Laying net

Getting into water to trap fish into the net

Movement is water causes a shrimp to jump out of water and onto land.

They work.

The catch. Or, what I assume is the catch.

The fish have some kind of spike growing on their body.

The fisherman uses these spikes to pile them up.

And before leaving throws them back into the water. Which attracts more fish, the fish they actually intend to catch.

Then they walk away with the actual catch. They walk to another spot and repeat the process all over again.
