Nothing paints the picture of a Mediterranean island better than a fishing boat cruising through bright blue waters. Idyllic as it seems, it is no secret that our seas are under immense pressure, and that small-scale fishing is a striving profession. Fishermen are the first to know how our seas have changed, witnessing the overexploitation of resources and competing for space. I joined the Cyprus Bycatch Project on its quest to understand the magnitude of the bycatch problem -the accidental killing of vulnerable species- in Cyprus and offer solutions, capturing fishermen’s tales.
