While many Afghanis turned to poppy farming to survive, pressure from the authorities to give up the illegal crop mean some people are turning to fish farming as a profitable alternative.
Fish farm owner Haji Anzurullah used to grow opium illegally in eastern Afghanistan, but gave up after authorities destroyed his poppy producing fields.
He then turned his two poppy fields into fish ponds and now breeds more than 6,000 small silver fish, buying them from neighboring Pakistan once a year.
There appears to be some hope for change with over 200 fish farms in the Nengarhar province and thousands of people benefitting from the business.
