Join us on Monday, 20th of June, where we’ll be joined by Professor Nina Laurie and Dr Tania Mendo from the University of St Andrews to explore fishing harvests and fishing communities in the Sechura Desert of Peru.

This exciting talk is part of the exhibition programming for “When It Rains, We Harvest/Cuando Llueve, Cosechamos”, exhibiting in the Scottish Fisheries Museum until the 20th of June. This exhibition and event are being organised by students from the Museum and Galleries Studies programme at the University of St Andrews. Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for a last chance viewing of the exhibition!

Abstract:

“For millennia people living in the northern desert of Peru have taken advantage of the periodic but unpredictable rains known as the El Niño Phenomenon which come every few years to coastal Peru. Temporary lagoons provide abundant fishing opportunities at moments when catches from the sea cannot be relied upon. What lessons can this corner of Peru offer about how to make fishing communities more resilient in the context of climate change?”
