This fisherman sat in his old wooden boat surrounded by yards and yards of nets - his livelihood. Early each morning he fishes - praying for a good catch. Every afternoon he returns - hopefully with fish to sell. Knowing he will spend the next several hours in the hot sun meticulously cutting out discarded fishing line, plastic bags, food containers. Year after year, millions of tons of garbage are thoughtlessly tossed into the ocean or left on beaches - finding their way into his nets. He smiled at my questions - "Yes, it is the same every day - but what can I do - I am a fisherman."
