Bangladesh's otter fishing faces extinction

Centuries-old tradition of using otters to catch fish could slowly disappear as fish stocks continue to dwindle.

    For centuries, fishermen in Bangladesh have used otters to catch fish.

    They use a technique that relies on high-level coordination between humans and the trained otters.

    But as the number of fish dwindle, there are fears the art of otter fishing could die out.
