The sponge farmers
Sea sponge farmers tend to their crop on a sponge farm near the village of Jambiani in eastern Zanzibar. Sponges offer a decent income and a more sustainable way to make a living from the sea than fishing or hunting for octopus. Sponges also tend to be more climate-resilient than seaweed, which is becoming harder to grow in certain areas of the lagoon due to rising water temperatures.

مزارعو الإسفنجيات يعتنون بمحاصيلهم في مزرعة إسفنجيات بالقرب من قرية جامبياني في شرق زنجبار. وتوفّر الإسفنجيات دخلاً لا بأسَ به وطريقةً لكسب العيش من البحر أكثر استدامةً من صيد الأسماك أو صيد الأخطبوط. تقاوم الإسفنجيات الظّروف المناخية أكثر من الطحالب البحرية، التي باتت زراعتها أصعب في مناطق معينة من البحيرة بفعل ارتفاع درجات حرارة المياه.
