Chinese fishing nets at Fort Kochi, located in the Kochi city of Kerala, make up a very popular tourist attraction.
They are fixed land installations, which are used for a very unique and unusual method of fishing. Operated from
the shore, the nets are set up on bamboo and teak poles and held horizontally by huge mechanisms, which lower
them into the sea. They look somewhat like hammocks and are counter-weighed by large stones tied to ropes.
