Collecting the Catch: The Fishermen of Fonte da Telha

For most of us, going to the beach implies laying a towel down on the sand, popping open a cold beverage, and doing a little light reading. For those who make their living on the water, the beach turns from break room to workplace at the beginning and end of each day. Rolling up nets, flaking lines, rounding up hundreds of slippery fish, and sorting the day’s take, is all part of the process. For those lucky enough to catch the fishermen in the act at sunset on a wild beach like Fonte da Telha in Caparica, it’s a thing of beauty to behold as they rein in the nets.

Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, or full-blown carnivore, it’s hard not to marvel at the well-practiced skill of these dudes — and plenty of gals — yield some pretty impressive results. How many sardines do you think they caught?
