Challenge to traditional fishermen at Benaulim

GOA: An unusual swelling of the sea at around noon posed a challenge to traditional fishermen at Benaulim who attempted to pull their canoes onto the shore while they were being dangerously tossed around by large waves. The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) had warned of a sea surge from 11.30am on September 7 to 11.30pm on September 9.

Three of the canoes that had ventured into the sea earlier in the morning returned at around 11.30am. Waves breaking near the shore were so strong that the fishermen could not control the vessels and managed to bring them to a stop close to one other.
An all-terrain vehicle was then brought to the beach, to which one canoe was tied. Later, workers from other fishing boats and locals who were visiting the beach to buy fish, lent a hand to pull the vessels ashore. It took over two hours to bring the three motorised canoes onto the beach.
