Exhibition inauguration: Citizens of the Sea

This extraordinary exhibition showcases the  the artisanal fishers of the Mediterranean, strong men and women who work on the waves. Prize-winning photographer Carlo Gianferro travelled to Marine Protected areas throughout the Mediterranean to document the lives and work of small-scale fishers and their communities - their way of life, their relationship with the sea, their capacity to get involved in the protection of the marine environment and thus in MPA management. The photos support the objectives of the project and show how artisanal fishers play a vital role as guardians of the sea, by fishing in a sustainable way, by taking ownership in the protection of the sea, and by being involved in MPA management and fisheries management more widely.
