About the Cover
Fish Market, Ivory Coast, West Africa
The Ivory Coast, with over 500 miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, is blessed with abundant marine life. This local wealth supports coastal fishing, most of which is done on a small scale, using lines or nets from canoes. Foreign trawlers are also attracted to these same fishing grounds and can exploit this resource far more intensively than the local people. Nonetheless, fishing remains an important livelihood for many people in the Ivory Coast. Freshly caught tuna, sardines, and hake are sold throughout the country, in markets such as the one shown here in the region of Man.
