The smell of money: why locals think Peru’s billion-dollar fishmeal sector stinks
Those living in the coastal city of Chimbote say the industry pollutes the air and water, makes their children sick and has put local fishers out of workJust before you reach Chimbote, a seaside city 260 miles (420km) north of the Peruvian capital Lima, you can smell it. It’s like the whiff of a fishmonger’s stall on a hot afternoon. For Peruvians, it’s synonymous with a bad pong; “smells like Chimbote” means something stinks.Once that scent was “the smell of money”, according to another popular expression. A natural superabundance of Peruvian anchovy – known locally as anchoveta – off its Pacific coast makes Peru the world’s biggest producer of fishmeal, a condensed powder or cake made from ground dried fish.

This Is What Dreaming Can Look Like For A Blind Person
When you dream, what do you see? Our dreams are usually vivid and we can often visually remember the scenery, people and other aspects. But is this the same for people who can’t see? How do people who are blind experience dreams?The eye surgeon specialists at NVISION have released a series of illustrations showing what dreaming can look like for a blind or visually impaired person. They asked five blind or severely sight impaired people to describe how they experience dreams and brought them to life through a series of images. The participants described how they predominantly experience dreaming, with feelings and emotions common themes. A designer was then given the task of creating visual representations from the interviews.The team behind the project hope it’ll help to raise awareness about what it is like to live with blindness or a severe visual impairment. Read on for the gorgeous descriptions and images below.ClaireClaire, who lives in the UK with her family, was registered as blind in 2017 after suffering a series of strokes that gradually caused her to lose vision. Although Claire spent most of her life as a sighted person, she says that she has started to forget what things look like.“People who go blind usually lose their visual memory after seven years and there are many things of which I have already started to forget what they look like,” she says. Claire says she experiences very lucid dreams, and that she always remembers them when she wakes up: “My dreams are full of rainbow colours, bright and multi-coloured,” she says. “I often dream of going on holiday, being in happy places.”In Claire’s dreams, her visual impairment is gone: “In my dreams, I can always see, I never have to use my white cane. […] I often do activities that I cannot do in real life, such as driving a car or flying a plane.” For Claire, the dream world is a very happy place: “My dreams usually make me feel happy and I love dreaming.”AnthonyAnthony wasn’t born blind, so he has memories from when he was little and says he’s got an idea of what the world looks like. His dreams tend to be “just like real life but more intense.”. “I can see in my dreams. It feels as if I see perfectly sometimes,” he says. “Things are so bright and vivid.”Anthony was born with Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), a rare condition that can cause blindness from a very young age.Now a Paralympic athlete in surf, judo, wrestling and skating for the US, Anthony has been featured in a documentary on Amazon Prime called “A Shot in the Dark.”His dreams are often full of emotions and he says it can sometimes “feel like a whirlwind of emotions, where I am floating in different feelings and colours”.At times, Anthony dreams about his brother who passed away: “They are my favourite dreams. He always wears his sunglasses and we travel to places we have never been before. Sometimes my dreams are hard to wake up from.”Mary KathrynMary Kathryn makes a distinction between her physical vision and her internal vision, and describes her internal vision as “that sensitivity, that emotional feeling, that sixth sense.” She explains that “as a blind person you use that sixth sense a lot as you literally feel your way through life. I would say the sixth sense is being in your heart”. Other than that sixth sense Mary Kathryn experiences, she says that she also experiences other senses in her dreams such as smell, sound and also sight. In her dreams, she is not usually blind, and she never uses her cane. About 33 years ago, when Mary Kathryn was 13 years old, she was diagnosed with the hereditary condition Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). The condition, which affects the retina and is caused by a loss of oxygen behind the eye, started as severe night blindness and progressed into tunnel vision. Mary Kathryn’s condition continued to deteriorate over time, and today, she is legally blind with 11% peripheral vision left in her left eye and 13% peripheral vision in her right eye.Mary Kathryn practices meditation and draws a connection between her meditation and dreams: “I meditate regularly and with my eyes closed my vision, that visual feeling, becomes clearer. Colours are more vibrant and everything is more detailed. I ‘see’ more with my eyes closed and it is the same when I am dreaming.”AshtonAshton has been blind since he was born. He has been diagnosed with a rare condition called septo-optic dysplasia, which causes underdeveloped optic nerves. He was interviewed alongside his mother, Hilda.When Ashton dreams he uses all his senses, and mentions that when he dreams about warm water, he feels a lot of heat.When he dreams he always sees his memories: “It looks as if I am in a circle of memories. I can see different things and places where I want to be. I like to dream about going places. I like to go to the ocean, to skateparks. I like to make cool videos and I often dream of being a writer.”Ashton thinks his blindness gives him a different dream experience: “I think dreaming for me is different from how it is for other people because I can see a lot of things that other kids cannot see. I notice things in my dreams that sighted people may not notice.”Stephanae“I will never forget that moment. My world changed in an instant. It was as if the world suddenly changed,” Stephanae says. “Everything was brighter and all my senses were heightened.” As a child, Stephanae had high myopia (a rare type of extreme nearsightedness) but she did not realise she couldn’t see properly until she tried glasses for the first time.Stephanae thought that that was it and that she could live with glasses for the rest of her life, but when she reached her 40s, she suddenly lost sight in one of her eyes, and some time after, her other eye got affected too. After numerous operations and attempts to save her vision, Stephanae was declared legally blind.For Stephanae, it took some time to accept her diagnosis, and initially she did not want to use the white cane as she did not want to be seen as a victim.When it comes to her dreams, she says one word in particular comes to mind: “vivid”.“In my dreams I can see perfectly and I can do lots of things,” she says. “I never have to use my cane. I can drive. In the beginning when I was first diagnosed as legally blind I used to wake up disappointed as in my dreams I could see so well.”Related...Do You Have Visual Fatigue?
