There are various fishing techniques employed by fishermen in Kerala in order to catch fish. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages. But overall, they are all effective ways to catch fish. Some of these most commonly used techniques of fishing in Kerala Include the following ones:
Nets are the most common! In this, fishermen use a large net which is supported by a wooden frame. The net is then lowered into the water and the fish are caught in it. The nets are set up in strategic locations in the water and then the fishermen wait for the fish to swim into them.
Another common technique is angling. This method involves using a rod and line to catch fish. They use bait to attract the fish and then catch them with the help of the hooks attached to the line. The fishermen will cast their line into the water and then wait for a fish to bite.
Bow fishing is another popular fishing technique used in Kerala. In this method, fishermen use a bow and arrow to catch fish. The arrow is fitted with a special tip which is designed to kill the fish. This could possibly be done from boats or even from shores.
Bamboo traps are also used by fishermen in Kerala to catch fish. In this method, Bamboo traps are set up in shallow waters and the fish are lured into them with bait. The bamboo poles are placed in the water and the fish are caught in them as they try to swim through. Once the fish are in the trap, they can be caught easily.
Another interesting technique used by fishermen in Kerala is wrapping palm leaves around their waist with a rope. This is done in order to walk through the backwaters without getting wet. The palm leaves act as a floatation device and the fishermen can move around easily. This is done to scare the fish and make them easier to catch.
Finally, the Chinese fishing nets are also used by fishermen in Kerala. These nets are huge and they are set up in the water. The fishermen then use a pulley system to raise the nets and catch the fish. This popular fishing technique used in Kerala is known as Chinese fishing. These nets can be operated by one or two people.
