A secret buried beneath the surface, revealed only through the water's eerie transformation.

A Journey of the Fish - Sardinha

The story of fishing industry in Portugal is a story of how modernization, overfishing and disregard for the environment can have dire consequences on the local communities and the ecosystem. But it is also a story of resilience and hope, as the local communities and authorities are working together to revive the industry in a sustainable way.
