The Wider Image: Hunting for gooseneck barnacles
Spanish fisherman Santi Diaz Mosquera knows every journey down the treacherous Galician rocks in search of a handful of prized gooseneck barnacles could be his last. The dangerous practice of darting in between the huge waves that hammer against the Ferrol coastline in northwest Spain to cut the rare delicacy from the rocks claimed the life of his father nearly 15 years ago. But for Mosquera, the rewards from a successful mission are too great to ignore. He can sell 1 kg (2 lb) of the crustaceans for around 70 euros ($73). That rises to 250 euros ($260) at auction in the week before Christmas, a big sum in a region struggling since the collapse of its shipbuilding industry. On a good day Mosquera can catch 10 kg of gooseneck barnacles, also known as percebes. REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH "BARNACLES" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Wider Image: Cleaning up Shipbreaking
A worker uses a cutting torch to dismantle the hull of a barge covered in barnacles near French navy vessels at the Galloo ship recycling plant in Ghent March 24, 2015. The site, which is Europe's largest ship recycling plant processes some 35,000 tonnes of metal every year. The European Union plans to impose strict new rules on how companies scrap old tankers and cruise liners, run aground and dismantled on beaches in South Asia. However the practice in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, hazardous for humans and the environment, will still be hard to stop. European, Turkish and Chinese recyclers are set to benefit from the revamped standards. Depending on raw material prices, ship owners can make up to $500 per tonne of steel from an Indian yard, compared with $300 in China and just $150 in Europe.

SPANISH FISHMONGER SELLS SEAFOOD AT MARKETPLACE IN MADRID.
A Spanish fishmonger sells seafood at a central marketplace in Madrid
on November 20, 2002 as damage caused by the spill of fuel oil from the
Prestige tanker on the richest area for seafood in Spain starts to be
felt in marketplaces. The tanker laden with 70,000 tonnes of fuel oil
split in two and sank off northwest Spain triggering what ecologists
said could become one of the world's worst oil spills. Prices and
supply of certain seafood, like goose barnacles, had only recently
stabilised after an oil spill off the Galician port of La Coruna 10
years ago. REUTERS/Andrea Comas

Researcher Tim Dempster reads his clipboard as he swims near a barnacle-encrusted buoy located ten kilometres outside Sydney Harbour April 24, 2002. [Snorkelling in water up to 100 metres deep, Dempster has been studying for the past three years the number of fish that congregate around the buoy, trying to discover why Pelagic fish such as marlin, tuna, king fish and dolphin fish do so in such great numbers. His research has resulted in more than $A230,000 (US$120,00) being allocated for the deployment of more buoys along the coastal waters.]

SOJOURNER NEARS "BARNACLE BILL" ROCK ON MARS
The Mars Sojourner rover vehicle explores the surface of the red planet near the rock (L), known as "Barnacle Bill", in this photo released by NASA's JPL laboratory in Pasadena, July 7.The first chemical analysis of the rock produced surprising evidence that the planet was much more like Earth than researchers had suspected. The analysis by the rover shows that the rock contains about one-third quartz, a substance never found before in any extraterrestrial object.
