Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Mauricio Lima's photographs on fishing for the pirarucu, one of the world's largest freshwater fish, in Brazil's Amazonas region. Nearly two decades of conservation efforts, which, today, allow only locals to harpoon and bludgeon the pirarucu, appear to be working. Lima's striking pictures illustrate the struggle that goes into killing these beasts, whose fragile survival impacts these fishermen's only livelihood.
