The Casamance region in the South of Senegal is one of the last areas of traditional fishing in West Africa, and crucial to the food safety of many African countries. But the challenges of industrial fishing companies and harsh working conditions are putting the region in danger of collapse. Issues like affordable living, healthcare, gender equality, deforestation, and human-value versus commodity-value are explored through the fascinating life stories of the people who live there.
