Re: Video: Commercial fishing in La Manz
What a wonderful find, thank you Duckie! This was published just yesterday on YouTube and was filmed very recently here in La Manz. During the original interview with Fermin, the Pres of the co-op for the last 2 years, Fermin explains how difficult this time of the health pandemia has been for the fishermen here-how everything has basically stopped for them. We hope this excellent video will elevate the awareness of the reality of the life of our local fishermen and the abundance of food found in our bay. All the details (types and habits of fish here, how/where the co-op sells them, how much the actual fisherman earns, hours worked, equipment and baits used and how, why, where dependent on the season, depth and temp of water, etc). The interviewer had tons of interesting questions for and answers from the various fishermen he spent time with during this filming. Later in the video (after a trip to check on fertilizers used in another region of Jalisco) they return to go out on a night fishing trip, looking for sierra, huachinango, jurel, "whatever lands in the net." Tons of info. shared during that trip. There is also a nice explanation of the Virgin on the Rock and the one that lives below as well, with explanation of the wonderful spectacle on August 15th each year. Thanks again, Duckie and thanks to "Tierra Fertil" television for your trip to La Manz and this support of our fishermen. Judy and Felipe
