Klippfisk, Bacalhau, Katsuobushi, Vobla,… These names represent just four examples of a tradition that has been kept up for centuries in many regions of the world.

The above photos are a small choice of the works of many members documenting the process of drying fish, helping us witness the differences and similarities of procedures across the globe.
