©Dieter Telemans/Panos Pictures..Muynak, Karakalpakstan..The present generation of fishermen.The disappearance of the sea left most of Muynak's working population.without employment. As there are few or no prospects, many families have.left the area. For those left behind this artificial lake may be their only.source of income. With a bit of luck, they can catch a snake fish here, one.of the few species that still survives in the salty water. Three to four.tonnes of fish used to be caught here each day".Photo:  Dieter Telemans / Panos Pictures/Felix Features
