Traditional fisherman launches his "atarraya" looking for the catch of the day early in the morning. In the past, before the coastal wetland was degraded with polluted waters from the surrounding city of Cartagena and it's communicating channels with the sea closed due to unplanned city expansion, fish production was remarkable, supporting the native people from fishers town La Boquilla to live from fish commercialization only. Nowadays this natural resource is so scarce that fishing in most cases is a unwanted job, only practiced by elders.
