“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Thiof (epinephelus aeneus) was the most widespread fish spieces in Senegal. Today, it is almost extinct. This is a real national drama, because it represents the substance of alimentation of people in Senegal. And what is the reason of extinction of thiof? Globalization of fishing. Along the African coast we could see enormous fishing boats plundering the sea. Those boats are mostly from the Global North: Japan, United States and mainly Europe... The Global North is exploiting the Global South. Fishing in Senegal is only one of the numerous cases.
