Fishing is a major source of food and employment in Cape Verde. The fishing boats go our early most mornings and then return during the morning. Here, on the island of Maio, you can see them returning and then go to the beach and buy the fresh fish. the colourful boats also look very attractive on the main beach in Vila do Maio (also known as Porto Inglês. The catch will often include tuna, wahoo and grouper.
