İZMİR…. Fishing Industry

Leave a comment

Tuesday 14 October, 2014 by Uncle Spike

In my previous post on the city of İzmir, I mentioned that there was a fishing industry… well, yes there is. Perhaps it’s not as large or commercial as it once was, but it would seem that there are still many who make their daily living fishing the waters of the Aegean Sea.

These shots were mostly taken early in the morning, and the light was not at all favoured by my camera, so please excuse the quality in some images…




Moored up fishing vessels; they come big, and they come small. 




Another harbour area, and yet more boats moored up. As always, there are a few cats patrolling the area, fishermen at work, bundles of smelly fishing nets, and of course plenty of Turkish flags.




Love how the fishing fleet here includes so many traditional small boats, and also how close they are situated to the residential areas.






There never seems to be ‘closed’ time… there are always guys at work (or just drinking çay -tea-), with boats and fishing nets in constant need of cleaning and repair.   




One final image of the fishing boats of İzmir…
