Early morning
Low water
Looking to the large
Back to the beach
Fisher's style
On the way to the water
On the way to the water
Staring the sea
Experienced fisherman
Seagulls enjoying the result of fish
A sky full of enthousiastic seagulls
Some don't need a horse
The worker
And the water is cold
Seagulls enjoying the fishing
A bad day for Mr Crab

Horsefishing in Oostduinkerke, Belgium


The only place in the World where your eyes will observe these shrimpers. Horses are huge, shrimpers are a bit rough and seagulls are everywhere to steal some shrimps and execute brave crabs. Still very active, this fishery is now recognized by UNESCO (2013).
