Cesenatico – Italy

In this is region of Adriatic Coast the fishermen have a special way to trawl the fish. Along the (artificial or natural) channels in the huge wetlands of Po River Natural Park you can see these specially designed wooden huts with a footbridge to the water. There the square nets are attached to a kind of lifting mechanism to allow the fishermen to place the nets into the water. In my photos you can see these nets hanging in the air, waiting for the fishermen to lift them down, already halfway in the water or completely underwater. Then the men only have to wait a while, lift the nets back into the air and grab the catch of the day. It is fascinating to watch and while I was driving along the coast I was amazed how many of these huts and nets are found along the waterways. The fish they catch here are small sardine-like ones. I didn’t actually taste some, but next time I will and will also spend more time to watch the men on their daily life.
