fishing in Rio La Plata

Fishing for a living in the brown waters of the River Plate estuary is not easy. Hard work and danger are in the day to day routine of the fishermen. The nets they use are held by buoys; once in the harbor, the nets are neatly folded and stacked in the boats, waiting for the next outing. The buoys have flags with bright colors, to contrast with the gray seas that separate Argentina from Uruguay.
