We thought we were early but the whole place was thronging with activity with people putting up their catch for auction and and trawlers brimming with fish coming into the harbour to unload their precious booty.
Kingfish, pomfret, mackerls, sardines, prawns, ray fish, squids and many other fishes which I don't recognize could be seen everywhere. What I found interesting was that the men go fishing and the women would sell them in the nearby markets.
The catch at Malpe is distríbuted through the whole of South India together with fish coming in from the states of Kerala and Tamilnadu. We could also catch sights of the fishermen painstaikingly repairing their fishing nets in preparation for the next day's work.
