As well as rising seas in Tuvalu, there are also other threats that lurk just offshore. In this image, South Korean fishing vessels refuel and restock as they pass by Tuvalu. The waters surounding Tuvalu are rich with marine life, but a steady stream of international fishing vessels pass through the country's waters daily, stripping sea life from the water by using bottom trawling nets which drag along the sea floor to collect fish. Other non-target species are often inevitably caught during this process. Funafuti, Tuvalu. March, 2019.
