Bruno, a young fisherman, owner of the “Black Kiss”, is seeing the coastal fishing threatened by invasive seaweed, the Sargasso, and by the chlordecone, used in particular in the banana plantations. This highly powerful insecticide is contaminating the marine fauna and flora. In view of the authorities’ inertia, he has decided to fight to save his livelihood and has refused the only proposal that the state seems to be able to offer him: to train for another career. “I’m a disappearing species, just like a turtle or an iguana. In the zoo, there’ll be a notice saying: This was a fisherman”.
