Drying...

... and dying starfishes on a fisherboat. Some of their smallest tentacles were still moving, but the rest was all dry already, too late to save them. I don't know why the fishermen don't put them right back into the water.

Because they eat fishes and schellfishes, so fishermen treat them like pests...Life is hard.

i agree with alice, here in manila, there are street vendors selling dried starfish as well... which is sad to think because sometimes they bring in dried corals too
