An unexploded bomb, used for blast fishing, lies among lush soft corals. While illegal in most countries, this unsustainable fishing method is widespread and difficult to control. Blast fishing destroys delicate habitats and kills huge quantities of fish. Only the most valuable species are collected for market; the vast majority are wasted, left to rot on the bottom. Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar, Andaman Sea
