The shores of the Mozambique Channel, south west of Madagascar between Tulear and Morombe, are the territory of the semi-nomadic Vezo fishermen. Besides the various traditional fishing techniques with nets, spear guns, or the legendary turtle fishing, this wild coastline is also conducive to sport fishing. Over a few days, Eric, a professional skipper, takes Fred and Philippe fishing for giant trevally, sailfish, barracuda, grouper and whitetip sharks. Each day spent fishing with the Vezo or out sport fishing, is a day rich in adventure and discovery. Along the Mozambique Channel, the waters are populated with a wide variety of marine species. A total eclipse of the sun in June 2001 makes the stay with the Vezo even more exciting.
