Kerala - Kochi - Chinese fishing nets on Vypeen Island


I still have a few pictures of the Chinese fishing nets in Kochi that show them in full daylight.
Vypeen Island is located just across the water from Fort Kochi and is part of the same city.
In comparison with Fort Kochi, the waterfront is calm there. Very few visitors and yet pretty picturesque.
Actually there you can take better pictures of the fishing nets than in Fort Kochi. That was my experience.

On Vypeen Island you also have a nice overview of the historical heritage on the waterfront of Fort Kochi.
On one picture in the WS you will see how big rocks are suspended from ropes of different lengths. This as a counterweight when launching or raising the nets.
Many birds are waiting on the wooden pickets until the net is picked up and then they quickly leave with a fish.
