Mexican Shark Fisherman

Mexican Shark Fisherman pole their ponga boats from the beach at sunrise.

 

Throughout the day they will drag gill nets, for hours on end, through the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico at Playa de Bagdad. While seeking shark, the gill nets' by-catch is often overwhelming with nearly 100% mortality rate.
