In the past few years in Río Lagartos, a town in the Yucatán Peninsula, the number of divers injured or killed as victims of decompression sickness has increased. Decompression sickness describes a condition arising from a gas bubble formation blocking the bloodstream. Through Carlos and Amaury’s stories, we find out more about this job and how, despite its danger, they are un- willing to give up underwater fishing, which remains their principal source of income.
