It's becoming harder for fishermen in The Grand'Anse and elsewhere in Haiti to make a living as a  result of the severe destruction of the environment. Because of erosion which bring the topsoil to the sea when it rains, there is less and less fish and the fishermen do not have the adequate equipment to go deep sea fishing.
