Caption: Fishing in the Aral Sea. These fishermen are from Karakalpak, an Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in Uzbekistan and one of the regions bordering the Aral Sea. This photograph is from 1979, a time when the Aral Sea fishing industry was declining but still in existence. The fishing industry here employed tens of thousands in the 1960s, but by the late 1970s the catch had declined as the drying up of the sea accelerated. Fishing as an industry had effectively ceased by the early 1980s.
