In this Nov. 28, 2012 photo, the carcasses of fish that were gutted and filleted for customers, fill a trash bin to the brim at the Villa Maria del Triunfo market, one of the largest fish markets in Lima, Peru. Fishermen living around Peru's largest and oldest port, El Callao, have harvested the sea as a means of survival since the 16th century. Many believe the modernization of the port may have a negative impact on their livelihood, but fishermen also are concerned that overfishing has depleted the waters of scorpion fish, horse mackerel and mullet. Fishermen once arrived at El Callao's docks and sold as much as 110 pounds of fish. Nowadays, no more than 15 pounds are offered. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
