Oze Cormorant Fishing

By Weekender Editor

Between May 11 to October 15 every year, three fishing masters head out into the dark waters of the Nagara River to practice an ancient craft with a history that dates back over 1,000 years. With only the light of a fire at the bow to guide them, they skillfully send trained cormorant birds into the water to catch sweetfish, the local specialty. Watch this art from the shore or on a wooden boat nearby.
