„Lake Turkana, Kenya (Nigel Pavitt)“

Picture ID: f93df04

As the sun rises over Lake Turkana, a group of fishermen fish for tilapia with their traditional fishing baskets in the lake's shallow waters. These traditional methods of fishing are now rare because the introduction of small mesh gillnets has resulted in a marked decline of fish stocks close to the shore. The baskets are conical in shape, three to four feet wide at the mouth, and are made from pliable sticks and twisted doum palm fronds.
