Sea cucumbers are seen at the biggest seafood market in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, February 26, 2014. As evening falls over Sierra Leone's Banana Island archipelago, bats stream from their beachside roosts to circle in their thousands over the jungle village of Dublin. 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. While the Banana Islanders have no use for sea cucumbers, in China they are prized for their medicinal properties and as a natural aphrodisiac. Picture taken February 26, 2014.

A group of fishermen, using a wooden boat and an air compressor, hunt for sea cucumbers and lobsters. They earn between 600,000 rupiah ($65) and one million rupiah ($109) a day. After the sea cucumbers are processed, they are first sent to Medan, capital of North Sumatra province, and then exported to Singapore and China. Many youths in Simeulue Island turn to the profession of a sea cucumber hunter with its rising demand. Sea cucumber is popular in many Asian countries as a delicacy and for its medicinal purpose.
