Talai Fishing in a nauko (Bengal boat). Bhonar, West Bengal

The following photos are of boats called nauko from Bhonar in the delta region of West Bengal. here the boats are being administered by fishers who are preparing the nets, floating to the right spots and trying to find fishes to sell at the market. There are many more boats in the background, so it can be assumed that this area is a dockyad and fishing here is an economic activity.
