Description : Fishing is no hobby for this man. It is his only source of income. Like many people in the coastal city of Hodeidah, who depend on fishing to make a living, he sails early morning hoping for a good catch, only to return with nothing, but disappointment. The fishermen are unable to catch as much fish as before. He lives on the shore in a small makeshift hut made of pieces of wood, tin and plastic leftovers. Fearing that the fighting soon intensifies in Hodeidah, his family of four have already fled.
