Tom Gammage's visit of Tanjung Luar fish market

Words cannot describe how shocked Tom Gammage was after visiting the world renowned Tanjung Luar fish market on the 1st September.
ive been really busy
After working with Peter Honey at our new "Dugong Village' ( I decided to take a visit to the infamous fish market in the East of Lombok, Indonesia to take an inside look at how true the rumours were, and exactly what they were extracting. On a DAILY BASIS an AVERAGE of 20 large sharks, 3-5 manta ray and many more smaller sharks are caught; not to mention the dolphins, dugongs and other rare and protected species. We decided to document these horrific and largely illegal fishing practices and bring it to a worldwide audience in order to help bring this to an end. We are creating an edited video and several photographs from the day which will be released and posted soon, and will be sharing it through numerous networks. These photos are just a small glimpse of the truly shocking fishing activity that is going on at Tanjung Luar Market - located in the heart of one of the most biodiverse regions of the world. Watch this space for the upcoming video.
