In 1992, the Peruvian Ministry of Fisheries declared five nautical miles from shore reserved exclusively for artisanal fisheries, banning all purse seine boats and industrial trawlers (except those for shrimp) from the coastal area. However, with zero enforcement and further advances in technology, the industrial fleets exploit more and more fish stocks that are legal claimed for artisanal fishers. As part of a community-mapping workshop to document critical breeding grounds, areas of high biodiversity, and zones of fisheries conflicts, our team of animators worked with the local fishermen's gild, El Gremio del Pescadores, to co-create a stop-motion film illustrating these issues. Don Cosme, a respected fisherman from Lobitos, Peru, narrates this piece of history, and the major impacts today and for the future.
