This series catches the atmosphere around the daily routine of a group of fishermen on the coast near Lisbon.

They bring their 300m wide fishnet into the sea with a small boat and then pull it slowly back to shore with the help of tractors. Once the net is back on the beach, they sort and sell the fish.

This routine happens 4 to 6 times a day. It is a testament of the ancestral fishing practices still alive today.
