From a young age the children that live along the coast in Ghana, also known as the Gold Coast because of it’s history in trading Gold and slaves, are drawn into the mysteries of the sea. With their worn clothes and ragged looks they follow into the footsteps of their fathers and learn the trade of catching fish the way their forebears did. Most of them can swim before they can walk or even talk. Reading the waves and learning about the tide as they go along. These are the children of the sea whose fate and future is closely tight and linked in with that of our Oceans. Their lifelihood depends on the health of these massive ecosystems. A disastrous catch will mean going to bed hungry and getting up hungry. It’s a hard life that is bestowed upon these children. A collapse of any of these ecosystems would spell and mean disaster and bring hardship for all of the communities that depend on it.
