[More info on that horrible blast-fishing incident in Chile.]

17 May 2013 (Reuters) – Residents in Chile discover around 600 dead animals washed up on the shore in Punta Choros, on the country's northern coast. Officials fear the deaths were caused by blast fishing, explosions used by fishermen to rid the water of sea lions and seals that compete with them for fish stocks. Fishing is one of the most valuable industries to Chile, which has more than 4,000 km (2,500 miles) of coast.

    This is so sad to see. Hope the Chilean government will do something about these fishermen doing illegal fishing.
