PSIP Description: 
Scuba diving and local fishing practices threaten the biodiversity of the lagoons in Zanzibar.
Long Description: 
Zanzibar is one of the hottest tourist spots in eastern Africa and getting hotter. Many come for the scuba diving, but the sector is hardly sustainable as it is. Combined with local fishing practices, it threatens the biodiversity of the lagoons. Global 3000 looks at sea sponge farming, from cultivation to processing for cosmetics products or marketing as a souvenir in Zanzibar City.
