Fishing - Hauling in the nets

the boat is used to pull the net outwards ..

this is the view over the net when it's almost in ..

pulling teams!

this is the endgame part, the people pulling the lower parts of the net converge to close the net at the bottom ..

this sock-like thing is at the very apex of the net, and it's where most of the fish end up

most of the catch is mackerel, but there are some other fish I can't recognise ..

this one I was told is an 'angelfish' ..

and this one .. I draw a blank ..

lots of mackerel ..

and a few other different species - I could recognise a garfish and a pipefish (sort of straight seahorse ..)

here's the pipefish ..
