Leaking canoe

Fisherman Kabiro Sanya says his family has been fishing at Yelly Tanda along the River Gambia for generations.

He hopes his son will take over from him, although it is difficult to make a living.

Kabiro spends his days helping other fishermen because his canoe is leaking and he canít afford to repair it.

Fishermen, he says, donít get any help from the local government when theyíre in trouble even though they get advice on good fishing techniques.
