Belonging to the sea and the dock can be summed up in the phrase "When I was a little girl, I always went to the dock", often mentioned by the women who make up the fishing community of Barceloneta. This exhibition reflects on sustainability and fishing in a specific territory, the Barceloneta, and allows visitors to explore the past and present of this trade. The voices of fisherwomen convey the need for change and transformation in this sector to open up to the future. Through the exhibition, the Maritime Museum of Barcelona raises a series of questions related to the need to move towards sustainable fishing: What is the role of citizens? What can a city lose if it does not protect the local fishing community?
