Our visit to the artisanal fishing port of Mbour starts at the area where artisanal handmade fishing boats called pirogues, are made and represent all the different kinds of fishing boats traditionally used.
We will also visit the area for women of the market who transform fresh fish products into dried products to sell.
Walk with me in the crowd of fishermen, fish sellers, buyers and all those who are present to seize the many job opportunities offered by the port.
Join me on this amazing look at the traditions and trades of Mbour, Senegal
