Smelly skins make for fishy fashion in Kenya

Women sharpen their knives before setting about stinking piles of fish skins, flesh and bones that cover the floor at an unusual artisanal tannery in western Kenya. Set up by a 39-year-old industrial chemist named Newton Owino, Alisom Products separates fish skins from the rest of the waste, then tans them to make a kind of leather used to manufacture handbags, wallets, shoes, hats and jackets. Kisumu, on Lake Victoria, is a piscatorial place, a city where grilled tilapia and Nile perch are a ubiquitous delicacy, and from where cleaned fillets are exported around the region and the world.

  Once considered a bucolic jewel snaking through some of the busiest areas of Manila, Pasig River has long been thought of as dead---a waterway that only accrued sludge and filth.   Don't be surprised if the 25-kilometer river is again brimming with life.   Environmental advocates and students picking up garbage along the banks of Pasig River on Saturday were amazed to find activity above and beneath the fetid waters: the hardy janitor fish and tilapia, migratory birds and hyacinths.   "We were surprised the river wasn't foul-smelling," says Joshua Wano, a junior tourism major from Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
