The Wider Image: Aral Sea: big fish is back in small pond
A sea shell is seen on a salinated part of the Aral Sea coastline near the village of Akespe, south-western Kazakhstan, April 16, 2017. Akespe, home to some 250 people, and Karateren, inhabited by about 150, used to be dominated by fishermen until the water receded too far away - but it is now back in Karateren.
