Food for Thought

The shark fin trade is horrific as is it devastating to our oceans. However, there are still corners of the world where sharks are eaten as part of the traditional diet. This is true in M'Pai Bay, Cambodia a fishing village that relies primarily on the sea for their food. Unfortunately, larger commercial fishing boats now hunt in the same waters and the local fisherman must venture further and further, to bring food home for their village.
