Traditional fishing communities around the world are under threat of mass displacement by the industrial fishing practices of gigantic factory ships. This frightening abuse of the seas is actively promoted by governments in the developing world, as territorial waters are handed over to transnational corporations to meet debt obligations. Agencies like the World Bank also promote aquaculture prawn framing. The primary victims are poverty stricken rice growers and fishing communities. As waste from prawn farms are emptied into nearby rivers and other fresh water bodies’ large stretches of land become unfit for agriculture.
Fishing in the Sea of Greed: documents the response of the Indian fishing community to the rape and run industries that have begun to dominate their livelihood and decimate their environment. Under the leadership of the National Fish workers Forum workers are fighting not only for their jobs, but for the survival of the world’s coastal communities and ecosystems.
