Guatemala: Fishing in Lake Atitlán

Guatemalan fishermen in San Juan la Laguna are having a difficult time making enough money to support their families. An increased use of fertilizers has contributed to pollution in Lake Atitlán that, along with the rising water level in the lake, has resulted in dwindling numbers of fish. In this video Bernadino Bizarro, a local fisherman, and Manuel Barrutia, a scientist who has been studying the lake, describe the fishermen's plight.
