Fisherman in Jiangsu Province

The water that flows beneath this man's fishing boat is the same wastewater discharged from the factories, and the air that he breathes is the same acrid, metallic air polluted by the factories. The problem worsens in winter, when the water level of the river falls, but wastewater discharge does not decline. The fishermen often suffer stomachaches, diarrhea, and other diseases.
