Haenyeo, also known as "sea women", Jin So-hee, 28, and Kim Myung-soon, float in the water as they work in the sea off Geoje, South Korea, March 31, 2021. The disappearance of the seaweed, which the haenyeo harvest as food and which also provides habitat for other creatures they hunt, has forced the women to routinely dive to increasing depths, at least 12 metres, Jin said. "There is less for us to collect and we have to dive deeper, which is physically challenging," Jin said. Besides climate change, the women say they also have to deal with more pollution in the seas, complicating their already dangerous jobs. "I'm finding more golf balls than sea cucumbers now," Jin said. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji SEARCH "HAENYEO HONG-JI" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Jin and Woo are some of the youngest members of a centuries-old tradition. The vast majority of living haenyeo are now over the age of 70. The pair run a YouTube channel called "Modern Haenyeo" chronicling their lives and work, with their most popular videos garnering more than 600,000 views.

Jin So-hee, 28, a haenyeo, also known as a "sea woman", dives into the water to harvest sea cucumbers in the sea off Geoje in South Korea, March 31, 2021. Jin says her hopes of making a living as a free diver are now further threatened by climate change. "The amount of seafood we can collect is continuously decreasing," she said. "I thought that as long as my body is healthy, I could have been the oldest haenyeo when I'm 90 or 100. But now that I think about it, my health is not the only concern. I'm worried this job will change drastically or even disappear because of climate change." REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji SEARCH "HAENYEO HONG-JI" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Below them a struggle is playing out over an unexpected commodity - the lowly sea cucumber, a fleshy, sausage-shaped creature that scavenges for food on the seabed.
