Republic of Nauru. Central Pacific. Nauru is a tiny island (21 square-km).  Two men fish in the harbour at the end of the day. The Nauru Phosphate Corporation owns two cantilevers loaders. The buoys are connected to the deepest water moorings in the world (518 meters deep). Two ships can be loaded at the same time.  © 1999 Didier Ruef
