Destruction of Caiques

On June 12, 2018, Panagiotis Pagonis went out for the last time with his boat named “Katerina” for fishing. A few days later, he would watch its destruction by a bulldozer. He is one of 764 coastal fishermen in Greece who have joined the Action entitled “Dismantling a Fishing Boat”, which subsidizes the destruction of caiques.

In the same area, in the bay of Ierissos, Chalkidiki, Panagiotis Ioannou constructs traditional fishing boats, continuing a tradition of centuries.
