Fishing Frenzy Photograph by Randy Olson
In Senegal, some 600,000 people work in the fishing industry, and fish exports—mostly to Europe—are worth more than 325 million dollars a year. Faced with decreasing stocks, small-scale fishermen and Senegalese commercial vessels compete with foreign fleets. Additional pressure comes from pirate operations, which may take a billion dollars' worth of fish a year from African waters.
