Taghazout, Morocco is a small fishing village 19 km north of the city of Agadir in the south west of Morocco. The inhabitants are mostly of Berber origin. Fishing, tourism, and the production of Argan oil are the main source of income. This location has been a fishing spot for over 100 years. The fisherman’s fathers and grandfathers worked at the same location in Taghazout. This income is mostly surfing tourism and factories are beginning to take fisherman away from the village and also pollute the waters they fish in.
