By-catch turtle oil for sale

Shark product stall in Iztapa, Guatemala
also sells by-catch turtles turned into oil.

This stall in Iztapa, Guatemala is one of many close to Puerto San Jose selling shark products & also opportunistically sea turtle oil. The owner of this stall told us that fishermen take the turtles as bycatch and don’t kill them intentionally. Still highly illegal! Both the sharks and the turtles are a worry…
