When a school was sighted, the boat circled it and raced toward the beach. Here all hands have been summoned to haul in the catch. + Thousands of sardines flap vigorously on the sand, the noise rising above the excited chanting of the men. Dried in the sun, the fish will be fed to camels or serve as fertilizer.
