Drying Fish in Sri Lanka


Sri Lanka, Asia

S.M. Kanthi, 40, lays fish out to dry in the sun at the Main Fish Market in Negombo, Sri Lanka. Kanthi, who has done this job for five years, is paid 400 Sri Lankan rupees ($2.60) per barrel of fish. The job requires turning the fish over after several hours, protecting the fish from rain with a plastic sheet and loading them into baskets when they are fully dried.
