Scientific research, development of new fishing gears and citizen engagement are the main ingredients of the project to solve the conflict.

Director Statement

Nature and science show us incredible things and this is exactly what I would like to show in my documentaries. My goal is a scientific documentary that talks about Nature and science. For me, science communication means telling a story in which the main characters are the passion for scientific research, the enthusiasm for new discoveries and the beauty of Nature.
