Fishermen of Abu Dhabi
Expatriate fishermen from Mumbai, India come to work in Mina Port in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Most fishermen find expatriate work in Abu Dhabi to send money back to other family members in Mumbai. Five fishermen at a time are assigned to work on a wooden fishing boat – often going out to sea for four days at a time. Rough weather during the winter can pose hazardous conditions to the expatriates. And rising operational and equipment costs, declining fish stocks, and the risk of small catches strain each family of fishermen.
