West Africa is one of the last remaining biodiversity rich waters in the planet. Greenpeace is working on moving West African countries and major foreign fishing powers (China and EU) toward implementing responsible fishery management and sustainable fishing activities in the region.

China is now the largest fishing power in West Africa, who can play an important role in promoting sustainable fishery in the region. The three photo stories we captured in Mauritania and Senegal were to witness and visualize existing fishery problems in West Africa. We would like to fully display, in these three photo stories, China's distant water fishing activities in West Africa on the sea and on the shore separately, and to show local artisanal fishermen’s life and how they have been affected by industrial fishing giants.

We took these three sets of photo story to depict a panorama for the current fishing industry in West Africa. In the first set of photo story, we got on an African pirogue to showcase that foreign industrial fishing fleets have affected local small-scale fishermen’s livelihoods from a glimpse of local artisanal fishermen’s work and life. In the second photo story, we explored the emerging Chinese fish meal industry in Mauritania from an insider’s perspective and try to show how this industry may put local natural resources at risk. In the third set, our photographer went on a Chinese industrial fishing vessel to record the reclusive and lonely life of a group of distant water fisherman working and drifting on the sea.
