From the tropical beaches of Senegal, Les Grands Viviers sends some of the most exotic fish in the world to Samuels every week. The owner of the company, Adama Diane, made the trip across the pond to sit down with us as he tells the story of the local Senegalese fishermen whose livelihoods are based on fishing in the east Atlantic Ocean. He also discusses some of the responsible fishing measures being put into place in his home country. Some of the unique fish caught in these waters are Parrotfish, Rouget, Scorpionfish, Jumbo Squid, John Dory and Grouper. Adama highlights the contrast between artisanal boats and commercial vessels along with painting a picture of the fishmonger life in Senegal. The group also discusses nightlife in Senegal and doing aerobics underwater.
