Student helps stop blast fishing in Colombia
A marine biology student is trying to end an extreme way of fishing in Colombia. Blast fishing is a form of fishing in which explosives are used to increase a fisherman’s catch.
In addition to killing hundreds of fish, it also shatters coral reefs. In many places it’s illegal.
But Colombia is a country where fishermen still employ the practice.
Colombia has coastlines along both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Its waters contain 2,600 marine species.
