Travel Locations: Honduras, Brazil, Chile, Portugal, Mauritania, Tanzania, Finland, Russia, Philippines

Brad aims to spend the duration of his travels exploring fisheries and their dependent communities. He intentionally selected locations that would offer a representative span of cultures, fishing techniques, native economies, and climates. He hopes to be frustrated with language barriers, with food beyond anything he considers edible, with customs that seem unexplainable. Brad seeks these experiences not for shock value, but as a means to challenge him to find a way to communicate, to expand the limits of his imagination, and to accept customs which he may never be able to reasonably explain.
