The journey

During a one year journey along the coasts of the Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy & Ireland I will interview small-scale fishers about their lives. What’s the status of small-scale seafood producers in Europe? What keeps them up at night? How do they see future? What’s new, and what’s old?

My mission is to portray fishers and tell their stories, creating a richer and more colorful image of today’s small-scale seafood industry. A dive in the deep to discover what’s more to sea.
