Abstract

Fish and People' deals with species that are of economic (and ecological) importance and thus immediately familiar to a Pacific audience. It is tailored for middle and upper high school students and is accompanied by a comprehensive teacher's guide.

'Fish and People' is a 50-minute production divided into educational modules explaining the 'stock-recruitment relationship' in an easily accessible manner and with a carefully crafted portfolio of explanatory graphics and natural history photography.

'Fish and People' was funded by the Australian Research Council and Telekom Television (Solomon Islands).

Research Statement

Research Background This work is theoretically situated within long-running debates concerning the extent to which the Pacific Islander peoples traditionally practiced an ethics of conservation that was based on the collective, conscious recognition of the limits of fisheries, and the need to restrain fishing effort to avoid over-fishing (Berkes et al. 2000). Extensive empirical research previously undertaken by this researcher-scriptwriter and anthropologists concludes that contemporary scientific understandings of fishery biology and ecology could improve fishery management, while still respecting existing traditional knowledge systems. This audio-visual work, then, was created to disseminate crucial scientific messages across cultural boundaries to an audience with typically very low levels of literacy.
Research Contribution As an audio-visual resource for Pacific Islander peoples in particular, Fish and People comprises five ten-minute video modules featuring original interviews with Solomon Islanders, interwoven with underwater photography and 2D animations that illustrate key scientific concepts, such as reproductive cycles of fish and dispersal of larvae. Produced as science communication for indigenous populations, the work allows a new transcultural space for discussion about conservation and its impact on local cosmologies, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours.
Research Significance As well as successfully communicating key scientific ideas to its audience, this work stands as a pioneering example of science communication in the audio-visual format. Working to dispel unhelpful romantic Western notions of traditional Pacific cultures, it has been translated into other languages and for other cultures; has received praise from NGOs, research organisations (e.g. CSIRO) and governments around the world; and has become a core teaching resource for PNG’s University of Natural Resources and Environment.
