The last several days Erik and I have been investigating the perils of commercial diving. It’s amazing to see the back story behind what you see on your plate. These men battle dangerous conditions every day to earn a couple hundred pesos (about ten to twenty US dollars). As product becomes less and less, the divers go deeper and deeper, and take bigger risks. Several died in Kino alone in the last year diving for shellfish. (photo Dominic Bracco II)
