When you think of a man who is fishing for a living you have in mind this big mussel bound guy. Not so here on the Amazon. Most fisherman I know are skinny and spend most of their day out in a small canoe trying to catch fish to sell in the market. They will either sell it to a vendor they know well or just sell the fish off their boat. There are stories of how the fish used to be monsters but now catches are small, mostly because of over fishing by lager boats or corporation who can just scrape up the fish in big nets. The local guy just gets what is left over, unless they have access to a special spot where the big boat can not go.
