Aral Sea: big fish back in small pond
The Aral Sea, once the world's fourth biggest lake, is most likely gone forever, its death having brought about decades of environmental disaster — but a project to salvage its northern part appears to have succeeded as commercial fishing is once again viable.

KARATEREN, Kazakhstan
A boat is seen on the shore of the Aral Sea outside the village of Karateren, south-western Kazakhstan. The Aral Sea, once the world's fourth biggest lake, is most likely gone forever, its death having brought about decades of environmental disaster. However, a project to salvage its northern part appears to have succeeded as commercial fishing is once again viable in the adjacent Kazakh towns and villages.
