Peru’s ‘catastrophe’ oil spill slams small-scale fishermen
The large spill is having a devastating effect on ‘poverty line’ fishermen who depend on small daily catches to make a living.
A huge recent oil spill in Peru which the government called an ecological “catastrophe” has wreaked havoc on the lives and livelihoods of many fishermen who rely on the small amounts of fish they harvest close to the shore for their daily income.

Walter de la Cruz scrambled down a large sand dune in the fog to reach a rock overlooking the Pacific Ocean, where he has fished for 30 years. He cast a hook into the waters off Peru’s coast several times, with no luck. One attempt yielded a piece of plastic stained with oil.
