That’s the question we askedt to several international fishing writers and industry types, asking them to keep answers brief.
Turning tiny larval fish into art seems improbable, but rendering the improbable as stunning portraits in miniature is exactly what Akihiro Shiroza is doing.
His training is in the area of zooplankton ecology, focusing on the early life history of fish. Shiroza is now combining his interests in science and art to create what he describes as “digital collages of multiple super-macro photographs of chemically treated larval fish, some magnified up to 200 times.” Shiroza’s work is currently on display at the International Game Fish Association headquarters in Dania Beach, Florida.
