With their tattered rags and scruffy looks the children that live along the coast in Ghana are drawn into the mysteries of the sea from the day they were born. Following into the footsteps of their fathers 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 with that of our Oceans. Their lifelihood depends on the health of these massive ecosystems. It’s a hard life that is bestowed upon these children. A collapse of any of these ecosystems would mean disaster and bring hardship for all of the communities that depend on it. A disastrous catch will mean going to bed hungry and getting up hungry. And with dwindling fishstocks the fishermen are seeking cheaper workhands in the form of children to help them fish. The lucky ones will just stay out of school. The less fortunate ones will be trafficked to ease the economic burden on their families.
