These reef fish were killed by blast fishing, but are not commercially valuable, so they're left to rot. While illegal in most countries, this unsustainable fishing method is widespread and difficult to control. Blast fishing destroys delicate habitats and kills huge quantities of fish. Only the most valuable species are collected for market; the vast majority are wasted. Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar, Andaman Sea
