Every time I’m walking from Ayn el Mraysse towards the lighthouse, I notice a large number of fishermen gathering around one specific spot, which is where the sewers are discharged down into the Mediterranean. The smell is horrible yet they spend hours there looking for fish but I’m not really sure if they’re doing it for fun or they’re actually eating or selling these fish.

Is this normal? I get it that some types of fish are attracted to sewers but fishing in contaminated waters cannot possibly be a good idea. Can anyone explain what’s the catch here?
