Lynn Cazabon created Ecobiont, a triptych of visual stories focused on the physical labor and maintenance involved in scientific research, featuring Dr. Keiko Saito, Dr. Kevin Sowers, and staff in the Aquaculture Research Center at IMET. Ecobiont focuses on different aspects of the sustainable land-based aquaculture system being developed and refined at IMET, which due to massive overfishing and the collapse of fish populations around the world, will likely play a large role in how humans obtain fish for food in the future.
