Each Fishing net comprises a cantilever with an outstretched net suspended over the sea. Large stones suspended from ropes act as counterweights at the other end. The system is sufficiently balanced that the weight of a man walking along the main beam is sufficient to cause the net to descend into the sea. The net is left for a short time, before it is raised by pulling on ropes. Each such installation is operated by a team of up to six fishermen.
