The local way of fishing here on the Turkish turquoise coast. The fishermen set out a net in a sort of S-shape in the bay.  They let it settle and then close it and drag it on their boats with a winch. 10 years ago they could catch 50kg of fish with this. Today they are lucky if they can catch 5kilo... 5kg! That's nothing. An average tuna weights dozens of kilos. They can't live from it anymore. But the family can eat a fish now and then. The fishermen have diversified their livelihood and opened a lovely pension in this beautiful bay. That's wonderful for them and positive for the ocean! They are not dependent on the fish anymore, they're happy and it hopefully gives the fish some time to rejuvenate. 💪👊💙🐬🐬🐬 #oceanlove #fishing #fish #nofish #mermaid #splash4theocean #oceandiscovery #sea #sealove #socent #Turkey #nomadlife #100daysofblue #bluemind #oceanlife #lovenature #fishingnet #fishingboat #ocean #belowthesurface #exploremore #adventuretime #wanderlust #oceandiscovery #freedive #waterlust
