When in Kochi, make a short stop at Fort Kochi to admire Chinese Fishing Nets, representing an authentic fishing method and a landmark of the city. Although their name suggests Chinese heritage, the nets probably originate from Portuguese settlers who had colonies in Southern China. The unusual nets are fixed on bamboo or teak pillars and are lowered into the sea. Take a walk along the beach to admire the famous Kochi vista of the large, hammock-like nets appearing to float in mid-air, or purchase some of the fresh seafood being pulled out of the sea.

Chinese Fishing Nets Reviews
Very interesting watching how they use these nets and the sort of catch they get. Beware if they ask you to gave a go, they expect a tip if you help. Lots of fish on display along the beach/road side. more »
If you go to Cochin then you need to see the fishing nets, but they are clearly a tourist attraction now so don't expect anything too romantic. more »
Had visited during an off-season period and the crowds were very less A quiet and calm place. Maintained well with clean surroundings. Some fishermen allow you onto the main fishing area, but do confirm before entering. Several local eateries and tea shops available. Definitely worth a visit, can spend almost an hour here.
It was good experience with amazing construction and working of fishing net. Price of 8 medium size kanaam fish(very popular local fish) is 1000rs. I suggest you to go around 11:30AM to 12:30PM in fish market near fishing net as you will get fresh fish and they cook it there itself.
