Fishermen carries Good Size Hammour


Product details:
Code: RM_106

Description:
A Fishermen carries a good-sized pair of hammour to the fish market at Al Ras – where fresh fish is still sold today. Fish provided an essential source of protein for the people of the Emirates. Whilst fishing goes on all year, the period from September to March is the busiest and most productive since at this time the colder, less saline water from the Indian Ocean flows strongly into the Gulf, bringing with it sardines, mackerel, tuna and other fish. Using purse-seine nets which are dropped vertically and closed with a pull of the string-like pouch, the UAE fisherman reaps a rich harvest indeed.
