There are 64 pages of beautiful and poetic illustrations that, without words, tell us about life in the sea and the balance with the fishing carried out by human beings. It is a book of industrial fishing boats, fish and vengeful mermaids that come and go. A book that shows us that the sea is alive, that shelters and protects an underwater ballet of species threatened by overfishing.
