Today is World Fisheries Day. I immediately think about what’s happening in British Columbia and how the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Nation continues to stand, as they have for 30 years, in opposition to open-net fish farms in their territory. From there, my mind goes to places like Galicia, Spain, where women have formed an association to support sustainable fisheries in their region. The harvesting of mussels there is a prime example of profitable Green Ocean Farming. I think about Cuba, and the Gardens of the Queen where a pristine marine ecosystem is intact, even with the existence of a lucrative lobster fishery, because of protections that are made possible through cooperation. I reflect on my time in Kanyakumari, India, and Honduras, and Madagascar and Greenland, where indigenous fisher-people are bringing back fewer and fewer fish to feed their villages.
I used to believe that the oceans could feed the world. I am not so sure of that today.
A fishery is "a place where fish are reared for commercial purposes; a fishing ground or area where fish are caught; or the occupation or industry of catching or rearing fish."
What I am sure of today is that if we don't start paying more attention, taking more action and making more real changes in policy, that we won't have any fisheries left at all.
I stand with the Musgmagw Dzawada’enuwx First Nations people, whose traditional territories are utilized illegally. I stand with artisanal fisher-people from around the world who rely on a healthy fishery for survival, including those in my home province of British Columbia.

They were targeting 1,035 whales a year including a quota of 50 endangered Humpbacks and 50 endangered Fin whales. In 2014 the International Court of Justice ruled the whalers actions were not scientific. The only paper ever released stated that ‘whales eat fish’. 2015 saw no whales taken while the Japanese whalers revised their so-called scientific papers to return with a revised quota of 333 Minke whales in 2016/17. The whaling fleet will arrive sometime in December to the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary to begin its commercial whaling venture flying in the face of public opinion and morality. #turningthetide #icr #illegalwhaling #seashepherd #seashepherdglobal #sealegacy

May we never forget our hunger for life nor our fire for each other.
It is better to disagree and hear the other’s perspective any day. To learn their heart and how they think and who they are, even if it is not our own perspective.
Love never asks us to be the same. It asks only for vulnerability to be yourself.
Stick through the currents. It will make your relationships all the more beautiful...all the more strong, diverse, colorful, shapely and vivid.
This is the hope ups and downs bring us.
Ride the waves, climb and descend the hills.
The view’s great.

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // A mosaic jellyfish floats serenely with its minions in the waters off the coast of Myanmar in the Mergui Archipelago, a diverse region is in the middle of the Andaman Sea. Jellyfish are ubiquitous in the Earth’s oceans and are the sentinels of the sea. Many think of them as a pesky problem but they are actually great indicators of the ocean’s health. As overfishing, pollution and warmer water temps continue to rise we need to heed the warnings that these fascinating and mysterious creatures provide. Every time I look at this photo it reminds me how truly magical and wonderous the ocean is. We need to do what we can to protect it. #turningthetide

No salmon = No bears = No trees = MAYHEM. It’s a cycle!! #Repost @sea_legacy
・・・🐻🐟🌲
Photo by @simonagerphotography // Juvenile salmon spend two to five years in the ocean maturing. They become rich in nitrogen ‘15’, a powerful fertilizer. When they return to the rivers to spawn, the wild salmon get eaten by the bears who then poop in the forest—in turn, the poop loaded with the nitrogen ‘15’ feeds the trees making them grow tall with huge canopies, which, in turn, provide shade keeping the water cool in the salmon spawning grounds for the temperature sensitive baby salmon before they head out to sea and repeat the cycle. The wild Pacific salmon are the life blood of this coast. No salmon = no bears = no tall trees that provide some of the air we breathe. #turningthetide #ndp #fishfarmsgetout #savethesalmon #vegetarian #makeadifference #feedthebeast #feedthebears #salmonfishing #salmonfarming #environmentalist #environment #sealife

Photo by @simonagerphotography // When a whale poops, it’s poops a lot. Up to three tons a day, and it’s rich in iron and nitrogen. As the keystone species on this planet that sustains life—phytoplankton is a microscopic organism that, through a combination of photo synthesis and feeding on whale poop, produce over 70% of the oxygen on earth. Right at this moment, the Japanese whaling fleet is heading to the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary in Antarctica under the guise of research. They will harpoon 333 beautiful Minke whales.

#EyeOnClimate Day 20/30 – United Nations Foundation
*
I sat down yesterday to write about climate change’s effects on agriculture and was overwhelmed by the complexity of the topic. How could I sift through such a massive amount of information and distill it down to a couple paragraphs on social media?
*
Dismayed and feeling beaten, I closed down a thousand browser tabs and a dozen Microsoft word documents, and turned on an episode of my favorite show, the West Wing. Of course, in perfect “the universe is speaking to you” fashion, the episode I randomly selected focused on climate change and ended with these words:
*
"You're trying to move mountains. Do you know German thinker Max Weber? He said that ‘politics is the slow boring of hard boards and that anyone who seeks to do it must risk his own soul.’ You know what that means? It means that change comes in excruciating increments for those who want it.”
*
Climate change is a vast and complex topic and it affects everything on this planet. Every tree, every lake, every ocean. Every city, every country, every continent. Every man, woman, and child. It affects sea levels and agriculture and national security and human rights.
*
But the thing is, I don’t need to understand the entirety of climate change’s effects all at once. Tackling big problems involves breaking them down into manageable parts, so for now I just need a few key tidbits on how climate change affects agriculture.
*
I can commit to learning more and writing more about the issue in small increments, day by day. But a start is a start. And if you want to move mountains, you have to start by moving a few rocks.
*
So stay tuned for a post about climate change and agriculture!

Rain Wolf 🐺 eats 90% seafood and swims between islands off the coast of British Columbia. #Repost @cristinamittermeier ・・・
You have to look twice to realize that this beautiful animal is not a large dog; it is actually a Rain Wolf. This genetic variation of the Timber wolf is much smaller and its food consists 90% on seafood. In the wild coasts of British Columbia, Rain Wolves swim in between islands and make a living on the seashore by hunting and scavenging for barnacles, mussels, and of course, salmon. Like everything else on this coast, salmon are the thread that ties the entire ecosystem together. With the arrival of open net salmon farms on this coast however, the wild fish, and every creature that depends on them, are disappearing. You can help! Click on my bio to hep us create change.

@Regranned from @leonardodicaprio - @paulnicklen: Climate change is real. It’s time to stop debating this inconvenient truth, and instead direct our collective energy towards good decisions for the planet. Big change comes from small adjustments. Some ways to #doyourpart include avoiding plastics, choosing certified fish, and volunteering your time to a cause for change. .

@Regranned from @sea_legacy - Video by @paulnicklen // The sound of a whale is a beautiful thing. Be sure to turn your sound on to hear this big, beautiful bowhead whale in the Tallurutiup Imanga/Lancaster Sound marine protected area, in Canada’s north. It’s a step in the right direction, but we must remain vigilant. Threats from oil and gas exploration, seismic testing and heavy tanker traffic loom over the Arctic like a dark cloud, and we need to work with all communities to protect this fragile region. This week, we will share stories and imagery from our recent expedition to Tallurutiup Imanga and the Northwest Passage, where we witnessed both the uplifting beauty of the Arctic and the mounting challenges this region deals with as climate change, tanker traffic and mankind’s touch become more prevalent. #turningthetide - #regrann #whale #ocean #preserve #cove #extinction #endangered #species #song #water #beautiful

As the fish push in great pulses to reach their spawning grounds, on countless creeks and rivers, the excitement in the forest is electrifying. The fish are not only the vital vehicle that transfers nutrients from the ocean to the rainforest, as wolves, bears and eagles gorge themselves; they are also food, ritual, identity and tradition for thousands of indigenous communities.

I love how this print from the @paulnicklengallery exhibits the sometimes complicated but beautiful relationship between man and dog. Obviously I’m an animal lover, and dogs are one of my favourites. The relationship humans have with dogs is no more important than in the Arctic, where hardworking sled dogs enable safe, efficient travel across an icy, unforgiving landscape. It’s an often misunderstood partnership that—when witnessed—deserves reverence. This fine art print is available through my #NYC gallery, and partial proceeds go to funding @sea_legacy‘s efforts in #turningthetide for our oceans.

Foto por @CristinaMittermeier // Durante unos miles de años, cuando quedan pocos días de verano, los salmones vuelven al mar. Como la corriente es fuerte los peces tienen grandes pulsos para alcanzar loslugares donde desovan, sobre calas incontables y ríos, el entusiasmo en el bosque electrifica. El pescado no es sólo el vehículo vital que transfiere sustancias nutritivas del océano a la selva tropical, como lobos, osos y el desfiladero de águilas ; ellos son también alimentos, rituales, la identidad y la tradición para las miles de comunidades indígenas. Averigüe como este pescado es el hilo conductor que ata la naturaleza, comunidades y economías sobre la costa de la Colombia británica , seguir #following mi #instagram en @CristinaMittermeier.

One of the main reasons for Borneo's excessive deforestation - the infamous African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis). Native habitat destroyer on one hand, but on the other - a significant bread provider for the local people.

Photo by @cristinamittermeier // An American crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) peers above the thin blue line and we make eye contact through the lens of my camera. We can't help but wonder if writer, Ernest Hemmingway experienced something similar. It’s entirely possible. Unlike too many areas in the world, where you have to look through the history books to get a sense of what life was like only a few decades ago, in Cuba’s Gardens of the Queen, the environment hasn’t changed that much. It remains untouched by luxury hotels and manicured golf courses.
“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with that there is” - Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea, written in Cuba, published in 1952. To see more #underwater photos from this untouched garden, please #follow my #instagram feed at @cristinamittermeier

Bittersweet

I had the chance to witness this moment and take a photograph of it during my trip as part of the 2017SOI expedition. While beautiful to witness, this moment was rather bittersweet for me. Arctic sea ice and glaciers are melting, and this year arctic sea ice reached a record low for the third straight year. The icebergs I saw on the trip, while breathtaking, served as evidence of the damage we are inflicting upon our planet. I hope that by witnessing photos like this one, individuals are brought closer to what often seems like a distant problem, and feel an urge to take action.
