Woman sorting fish – At dawn each day, weather permitting, scores of small craft – up to 10 metres long and crewed by eight – launch from Vilanculo beach, Mozambique to set out and haul in 400-metre gill-nets in a constant cycle of roughly 15 minutes, for the next nine or so hours. Even though a single boat sets and hauls nets with a reduced and illegal size mesh over a distance of around 12km daily, the catch barely pays for the fuel used by the single 15-horsepower outboard motor.
