With the sea and the urban landscape of the Algarve* in the background, we follow the complete cycle of the life of a barnacle, from its birth to the consumer’s plate. During this trip, we go through different contexts and discover different realities that allow us to better understand this region and those who live there, punctually or permanently, holidaymakers or fishermen, natives or tourists. The visceral relationship with the sea, the drama of seasonality, and dependence on tourism, are some of the themes that will emerge.

* Tourist region of southern Portugal.
