De Fisheries

Fishing is more than an occupation, it’s a way of life. Barbados, a nation fueled by the passion and hard work of fisherfolk, is home to a rich fishing culture. In recent times, the industry continues to be threatened by many issues including the impact of climate change. This thought-provoking short film amplifies the voices of local fisherfolk and tells the story of declines in catches and observations of environmental change as well as the passion to support sustainable livelihood and hopes for the future. ‘De Fisheries’, a cry from the lips of the most vulnerable, is the beginning of a movement that will facilitate change.
