The islands Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique are surrounded by the sea and fishing is an important resource and livelihood for fisher families. The many fishing boats seen across Grenada and the Grenadines are crafted by skilled boat builders who have inherited their craft from generations of Grenadian boatbuilders. Beautifully captured here are two fishing boats with their seine or nets cast to catch near-shore reef fishes. Once ready, fisher folks will be seen “hauling nets” along the beach as they bring in their catch.
