Gaza fisherman battles poverty with plastic bottle boat

Gaza fisherman battles poverty with plastic bottle boatWith hundreds of empty plastic bottles collected from the shores of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, fisherman Muath Abu Zeid has turned litter into a floating source of income. The Palestinian father-of-four used glue and old nets to bind the bottles into a small fishing boat that he hopes will help him support his family. A broad slab of wood lashed to the top serves as a seat, allowing the Abu Zeid to row a few hundred meters out from shore — far enough to go fishing.

On Hurricane Bay, a Florida fisherman tries to ride out the storm

On Hurricane Bay, a Florida fisherman tries to ride out the stormBy Robin Respaut and Brian Thevenot FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) – As the winds started to roar in Hurricane Bay, P.J. Pike jumped from a high dock down to his fishing boat and began lashing ropes to the mast. The lines extended to anything solid nearby – dock posts, a palm tree, the Captain Tony’s Fishing Adventures sign – to anchor what would soon be his shelter for Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the Florida coastline. While newscasters and Florida Governor Rick Scott have chastised those who have chosen not evacuate ahead of the storm, Pike can’t see any reason to leave the Bottom Scraper, the 33-foot boat he bought for crabbing excursions and shark-fishing charters.
