A film by CMG Blue Initiative Grantee Mediterranean Conservation Society founded by Zafer Kizilkaya.

Mediterranean Conservation Society (AKD) has created a short film about fisherwomen, for fisherwomen. In it, these strong and courageous women tell their stories of family hardship, of the volatile fishing economy, and the promise of recovery that sustainable fishing brings.

The campaign aimed to support and train more than 100 local fisherwomen in sustainable fishing techniques throughout Gokova Bay. In Turkey, the profession is facing extinction due to overfishing and the lack of younger women learning the trade. AKD is actively changing the future of these local women.
