Ghana, 2013.

Ghana, Tema. Benjamin Na, 32, on kalastanut veljiensä kanssa Teman satamassa Ghanassa 12-vuotiaasta lähtien. Öisin merellä näkyy 20-50 kiinalaisalusta valokalastamassa laittomasti. Isot troolit puskevat paikallisten  puuveneet pois ja vievät sekä kalat että apajapaikat, jopa aseilla ja vesitykillä uhaten.

Ghana, Tema. Benjamin Na, 32, has been fishing with his big brother in the Ghanaian harbor of Tema since a small boy. At night-time he can see about 20-50 chinese trawlers light fishing illegally. The big trawlers push the local artisanal fishing boats away, rob the fish and occupy the fishing waters many times by threatening the local fishermen with guns and water cannons.
