Today, November 21st, is "World Fisheries Day", a day that was established to reflect on our evolving knowledge of the water, aquatic resources and the communities that depend upon on the resources.
Over the past eight years I have paired my passion for photography with my interest and curiosity for the aquatic resources in the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. As I came to realize the storytelling power of photography, I looked deeper and deeper into the Chesapeake Bay's fisheries to create 'Working the Water.' I plan to continue my documentation of fisheries, in the Chesapeake and beyond, to help tell the story of the seafood, the harvesters and the environment.
In this post, I have included pictures of fisheries that I have documented in on the Atlantic Coast, Gulf of Mexico and Cuba.
