    The fishermen port

    In the fishermen port, fisher's boats are awaiting for next sailing. The Gabès gulf is rich in fishes and fishermen do not have to sail a long way. Generally, they go very early in the morning and come back in the middle of the morning in order to sell their fishes at the market. Gabès is one of the main fishing ports in Tunisia.

    The nets are ready for fishing

    The nets are ready for fishing. The Gabes Gulf is never very deep and fishermen can put their nets even from small boats ; they do not need big nets, even these small one will hang from the surface of the see to the bottom and allow a good crop !
