Big Fish

Big Fish

For generations, the people of Bequia depended on the waters surrounding their tiny island for food. Bequians are one of the last groups in the world allowed to hunt whales for subsistence under the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling. However, anti-whaling nations and environmentalists continue to exert pressure on this small community to end its long tradition of whaling.
