About Chinese Fishing Nets, Kochi

The Chinese fishing nets at Fort Kochi, located in the Kochi city of Kerala, make up a very popular tourist attraction. They are fixed land installations, which are used for a very unique and unusual method of fishing. Operated from the shore, these nets are set up on bamboo and teak poles and held horizontally by huge mechanisms, which lower them into the sea. They look somewhat like hammocks and are counter-weighed by large stones tied to ropes.

The place is a glimpse into the life of the fishing community which has been converted into a tourist spot. Many people offer to allow tourists to use the nets and they cook your catch for you.
