Fishermen, United Arab Emirates

Photograph by Shoayb Khattab

A special technique used for fishing in Fujairah, UAE, is called dhagwa. The net consists of two parts: a red part where fish are trying to escape and an open part near the coast with which they collect the fish. The white dots are birds waiting to collect some fish.
