Catching the setting sun, these Chinese Fishing Nets frame many a Cochi postcard. The nets stand on the beach; bamboo and teak poles help lower the nets into the sea. This fishing method was thought to have been introduced by Chinese explorer Zheng He. But recent sources suggest the nets came from Portuguese explorers who were based in Macau. Similar nets can also be seen in Vietnam.
