Indonesia - Bangka Island - Sungai Liat harbour - Fishing boats parked in the harbour. The killing of coral reefs caused by tin mining have harmed fishermen livelihood, by pushing fish stock far away from the coast. Fishermen complain that, while before they were able to fish within four miles from the coast, now they have to go as far as 17 miles where waves are much higher and it is more dangerous to work.
