Fishing is the most important economic activity in Diego Suarez, North Madagascar. As the region is not shielded by any large neighboring landmass, it is exposed to strong currents that punish the Indian Ocean. Navigation is hazardous that even freight ships cannot pass the Cap d’Ambre. Yet almost daily, fishermen go by their daily chores of venturing out into the bay in single hull small boats. Being small is an advantage I guess. For spectators like me, there are always the colorful nets to catch my fancy.
