Overfishing in Senegal
A man shows fish he managed to catch with his traditional fishnet, St-Louis, Senegal. Many of Senegalese fishermen have problems with supporting their families because of overfishing. St-Louis was the first French settlement in Africa. It is placed on the Island near the river's Senegal mouth. The old part of town is full of colonial architecture and has barely changed since 18th century.
