Equivalence - The Ecological Footprint of Fish


Equivalence - The Ecological Footprint of Fish. Chow and Lin. 2017.

We examined the impact of farm fishing through the yellow croaker (大黄鱼) which is China's most popular fish.

Working with scientists, fish experts and local government officials, we traversed 4 towns in Fujian China to build a tessellated mosaic of fish portraits to see how much trash fish is needed to sustain fish farming.

The answer is 7.15kg, 39 species, 4000+ small fish to raise a single kilo of yellow croakers.

They are the 3 singular fish at the centre of the picture.
