L´or blanc du Lac Rose (The white gold of Lac Rose)
Lac Rose (also called Lac retba) is a a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 40km from Dakar. The small lake has a salt content close to 40% and is famous for its red colored water, caused by salt-loving micro-organism called Dunaliella Salina. The salt sediments at the button of the lake, therefore there is a small salt collecting industry, where people are harvesting the salt by hand. The salt is exported mainly to different african countries.
