Very sad and very powerful. The history of Kenya's fisheries is a long line of lessons on how NOT to treat our coast seas. The work you are doing is one of the first brights spots I have seen there. Congratulations and please, PLEASE keep up this great work!

Watched travel program made by a Taiwanese TV station last night. They were visiting Congo (not the ex Zaire). At the make-shift fish market on the beach, there were many good-size hammerhead sharks, all finless. The fishermen were selling the bodies to be made into salted fish, while the fins would be collected by a "middle-man(?)". The travel prog host asked if the fins were expensive & the answer was no, the meat was! Poor fishermen, being exploited or should I be happy that they did not know the true value of the shark's fin? Note that there were many other good size fish at the market...
