Hello Fish Smoking Experts,
I call you all experts because I know almost nothing about smoking fish.
I am working on a project for school (Arizona State University) where we are trying to increase the efficiency of the smokers used by villagers in a fishing village in Ghana. Also the smoke is cause respiratory problems. I have provide picture below so you can how the villagers currently smoke there fish. We do have to work within the resources available to the villagers. I was hoping to get every ones thought on what could be done to increase the efficiency of there smokers and either reduce the smoke or get exhausted above the villagers.
The smoking is done by the women since most the men fish. I am not sure what type of wood they use, or if they prefer one type over the other. It does rain alot in this village so they would get wet very easily.
Thanks for your help!
