The Wider Image: Mining tin from the sea
Fishing nets and buoys lie on a boat belonging to Apriadi Anwar, 45, a local fisherman in Batu Perahu village in Toboali, on the southern shores of the island of Bangka, Indonesia, May 2, 2021. Apriadi said in the past his family earned enough to pay for his two younger siblings to go to university, but in recent years, they have barely scraped by. "Never mind going to university, these days it's difficult to even buy food," he said. Apriadi says fishing nets can get tangled up in offshore mining equipment, while trawling the seabed to find seams of ore has polluted once-pristine waters. "Fish are becoming scarce because the coral where they spawn is now covered with mud from the mining," he added. REUTERS/Willy Kurniawan SEARCH "KURNIAWAN TIN" FOR THIS STORY.
