  • Compressor divers in Indonesia risk their life diving for sea cucumbers to trade as traditional Chinese medicine.
    Who’d of thought that a large, slimy slug-like creature that breathes from its bottom would fetch such a high price as a dish on your dinner plate? But that’s exactly what is happening with sea cucumbers. In fact, the price of a dried sea cucumber is so high some fisherman are going to extreme lengths to harvest them.

    This is quite interesting. I'm an anthropologist, and in Mexico there's also this kind of activity, specially in Yucatan, Baja California, Oaxaca and Campeche. I want to ask you something. In the video's description you said that the sea cucumber is trade as a traditional Chinese medicine, and I've been searching for more information about what kind of illness they're used for. I couldn't find anything, so if you can guide me about this issue, it would be great. You've got a new subscriber!
