Vypin Island, Kerala-Dolphins and Chinese Net Fishing




Vypin Island is criss crossed by canals. Though the area nearer to mainland is now waiting to see a boom in construction of multi storey buildings, the island and its beaches still have a serenity and beauty which is becoming rarer by the day.

Standing in front of a noisy school on the bank of the backwaters, one could see a school of dolphins popping in and out while a few fishermen were busy catching fish, standing right on the bank. Dolphins and fish seem to move together and the alert fishermen lower the Chinese nets into the water to pick up whatever fish can be netted. Not a very effiecient way, but then interesting to watch.

  9. in places like asia laws to protect animals such as dolphins are rare and there are many barriers to obtaining information on these
    only until the big nations stablished economic sanctions to countries may be doing something
