In Sfax, Tunisia, Destructive Fishing Kills Marine Life

A huge and diverse stock of fish and marine life is found in Gabes, where many species come to feed and breed. However, intensifying indiscriminate fishing off the coasts of Sfax has threatened this wealth, destroying a large number of fish species and damaging the ocean floor with nets equipped with weights or solid structures.
