Kenting, Taiwan -- Unicornfish caught in a fishing net.<br />
<br />
Even though local authorities established a protected marine park are around the tourist town of Kenting, many local fishermen blatantly ignore the park rules and illegally cast their fishing nets at certain sites. Apparently authorities turn a blind eye on these activities.<br />
<br />
The fishing nets not only decimate protected fish species, but also pose a serious threat to divers, as they are nigh invisible under water, especially at night!
