Sierra Leonean fishing village of Sulima

SIERRA LEONE - SULIMA, MARCH 19, 2007 : Sulima is a fishing village on the Alantic coast at the mouth of the Moa River near the Liberian border. Along its pristine beach, one of the longest in West Africa, fishermen launch dugout canoes and fish with nets drag back manually from the shore. Larger power boats mainly from Ghana leave from the more sheltered harbour on the Moa River. Most of the fish is smoke dried by the women of the village and then sold in markets as far off as Monrovia, Liberia. (Photos by : Christopher Herwig )
