Haiti Fishing Boats

Every coastal village in Haiti has a small fleet of fishing boats. The fishermen either sail or scull (row) to boats several miles off shore to their fishing grounds. Most fishing is done with nets, including cast nets, gill-nets, and seine nets. Traps woven from reeds or split bamboo are also used. Hook and line fishing techniques are used too but very little recreational fishing is done.
