Interesting News Video from Guna Yala about global warming

http://youtu.be/RWKRFiKemYo      Brush up on your Spanish!  Actually quite interesting and a good exercise. Most of us who have been out there and noticed the changes will appreciate just what is happening ecologically in San Blas, and one thing about this news video are the aerial flight views showing many of the now familiar places and islands that we have visited over the years. One question that has always occurred to me operating out there is: the ‘declining’ fish population. In real terms the Kuna are not really heavy fishers, since it s mainly subsistence., however it has been clear to me that the bigger and more popular fish and crustaceans are not that easy to find any more. Is this due to the Guna fishing practices, the impact of tourism (ie: Kuna selling to tourists) or is it to do with global environmental change?
