The darkest catch: Ravindranath K spends the night at Abu Dhabi fishing harbour
The Nationalís Ravindranath K documents the vibrancy†of Abu Dhabiís fishing harbour in the Mina port area.
As most of us are falling asleep the Fish Market is coming to life for a nightly ritual of off-loading, sorting, and auctioning before the winning bidders, and less lucky fish, make their way to the retail stalls.
As Ravi reports: "The auction is the most interesting. Two main auctioneerís call out ascending prices. The interplay between the auctioneers and the regular bidders is fascinating. Itís organised chaos with each player knowing exactly what their next move is. The scene repeats over and over, lot by lot."
