Toughest place to be a fisherman - Sierra Leone

For the small-time fishermen of Sierra Leone, a poor catch means their families go hungry.

British fishing boat skipper Andy Giles travels out to see at first hand just how tough a job fishermen Ishmael and Kaba Kain have - and how illegal trawling of the waters is damaging their centuries-old way of life.

Toughest Place to be a Fisherman is on BBC Two at 21:00 GMT on Sunday 5 February or watch online via iPlayer (UK only) at the above link.
