"Lac Rose, a pink lake very close to the Atlantic Ocean in Senegal" This man spends 6-7 hours a day,6 days a week in water with a salt content close to 40%. He manages to harvest about a ton of salt per day, which is loaded in a small wooden boat & when the boat is full, he returns to the shore and the boat is discharged by his wife and other family members. The salt is sold locally and for exports to other West African countries.
