While sat on a cliff top on the west coast of Morocco near Mirleft, I spotted something moving on a rock out at sea. Using a 65 time zoom on a bridge camera, I managed to zoom in to see what it was. On closer inspection there were two local fisherman on the rock. As you can see there are two rubber tube rafts secured on the rock. Chatting to the locals, it turns out that fisherman walk out or paddle out at low tide, then fish most of the day, returning by raft at the end of the day.
This is done daily to supply the local hotels and restaurants with fresh fish. Many fisherman live in carved out holes in the cliff walls on the coast. But this is how it has been done for many years and it won’t change anytime soon – it doesn’t have to does it.
