Description
The small fishing communities of the upper Gulf of California are facing a crisis - the black market for the swim bladder of an endangered fish called the totoaba is putting these communities and ecosystems at risk. This illegal fishery is also driving the vaquita, a species of porpoise endemic to this region, to extinction. Filmmaker Sean Bogle in attendance!
