APTOPIX Chile Fishermen Crisis Photo Essay

In this May 10, 2016, Marco, the 19-year-old son of fisherwoman Marisol Millaquien prepares to take out a boat on an expedition, in hopes of providing food for the dinner table, in Quetalmahue, on Chile’s Chiloe Island, during the country’s worst ever “red tide” environmental disaster. The view from Millaquien’s stilt home is desolate: dozens of abandoned ghostly boats, dead birds and shellfish. “I’m 46. I’ve seen red tide before, but never like this,” she said.
