Expanding populations and advances in fishing technology have led to a rapid decline in marine wildlife around the world. In the United States, over 90% of seafood is imported, primarily as tuna, salmon and shrimp. Increasing fishing pressure has caused us to move down the food chain from one overfished/crashed stock to another as we relentlessly strip the oceans of wildlife. This project includes pictures from the United States, China, Thailand, Australia, Bangladesh, India, Spain, Mauritania, Senegal, Peru, and the Falkland Islands, and documents how both large corporations and barefoot fisher folk have been emptying out the seas.
