The Wider Image: For South Korea's youngest 'sea women', warming seas mean smaller catches
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
