Contaminated sea collapses fish industry

Business: A woman sells fish on the roadside between Padang Bai and Kusamba.The waters around Kusamba were once so rich in fish that three fishing boats could be swapped for an acre of coastal land.

Sixty-four-year-old Gusti Lanang Oka, a former fisherman from the village in Klungkung, says those boats offered a much better livelihood than farming, so were far more valuable than land.
