Once upon a time, not even all that long ago, Essaouira was the biggest harbour town in Morocco and had the largest sardine catch in the world. Now the sardines are scarce there and the fisherman are forced to make their way southwards to Dakhla, where the Western Sahara meets the Atlantic. But it's tough going there as well: European, Russian and Asian fishing companies are dragging the waters with their trawlers, so the locals often return home empty-handed.
