Picture Fishing: Visualizing Global Fisheries Diversity
Term:
Fall 2018

Sylvia Targ's work "Picture Fishing: Visualizing Global Fisheries Diversity" aims to communicate the untold stories of small scale fisheries to anyone with interest and access to the internet. She aims to deconstruct the monolithic mental image of what a fishery looks like, in hopes it will lead to greater understanding of unique needs and nuance of global small scale fishing communities."Picture Fishing" is a collaborative initiative, drawing upon contributions from fishers and fisheries scholar around the world. Current progress can be viewed at www.picturefishing.com. Sylvia will be presenting a framing paper for the project at the International Small-Scale Fisheries Congress in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in October 2018.
