A Mexican fisherman cleans his meagre catch of the day in El Mayor. He is one of the very few that survive from fishing. The more than 30.000 Cucapa Indians that used to live off fishing have left. The few remaining ones say the fish is too polluted, it’s not good to eat, only to sell. The only source of water, the small Rio Hardy, is fed by agricultural and industrial runoff. A major earth quake in April 2010 drained most of the little water that remained. The original population that left the area because the US took their water has tried to move to that country for a better future.
