After the Fish are Gone from Prime Collective
In the August 2013 issue of Harper's magazine, there's a feature story on "the dismal future of the global fishery."
In conjunction with the piece, photographer Dominic Bracco II and writer Erik Vance produced a short documentary, "After the Fish Are Gone."
The video leads with the harrowing statistic that 85 percent of the world's fisheries have been fished to their limits or totally exploited.
A Mexican fisherman, Piolin, describes the drastic changes in the sea he's seen since he began fishing as a teenager.
After a long day of work, he sits in his hammock near the shore and talks about what his life on the sea means to him.
He paints a picture of his life in the town of Kino -- filled with drug traffickers and poverty.
It's a bleak existence, but he finds solace in the sea.
