Empty promise, Sea of Cortez, Mexico
This pair enjoying the apparently empty turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez are in fact wading through one of the world’s richest marine environments. As well as 900 fish species, including giant mantas, it is home to whales, whale sharks and, less famously, the geoduck clam. This strange creature, which grows up to 20cm long and is a local delicacy, caught the attenion of Hossein Amirsadeghi, author of a 600-page book chronicling his journey through Mexico in search of its diverse cuisine.
