In most places on Earth, dolphins create problems for commercial fishermen. The dolphins can get tangled in fishing nets, destroying the nets and themselves in the process. There is one place, however, where dolphins and humans work together to ensure that they both have plenty of fish to eat. To witness this unusual display of symbiosis, you have to go to Brazil, to the small fishing village of Laguna.
