42 Shocking Photos Showing Severe Pollution In China

21. Fishermen collecting fish in a polluted canal, Beijing

Fishermen walk through the muddy bottom of a polluted canal collecting fish in central Beijing October 21, 2010. The canal has been drained for cleaning, enabling fishermen and local residents to collect the small fish from the thick, black mud lining the bottom of the canal. Earlier this year, data from China's environment watchdog, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, showed almost a quarter of China's surface water remains so polluted that it is unfit even for industrial use, while less than half of total supplies are drinkable.
