China Coast Fishing

Synopsis
The traditional ‘floating population’ that fishes Chinese coastal waters from family-sized junks based in Hong-Kong harbour is in competition with salaried fishermen using motorised boats. The combined effect of education and an increased integration with shore life is putting further strain on old ways.
