poster that doubles as a fishing net

To educate fishermen on the need to join the hunt for lionfish, a venomous species destroying the Caribbean ecosystem, Geometry designed very smart posters.

Printed on an incredibly tough material, it explains everything the fishermen need to know about the lionfish, it shows images of the lionfish, and then the poster also transforms into a lightweight net the fisherman can use to bring home the catch. Yes, it's a poster that can work as a fishing net. How very clever!

As a result of handing out these posters, they converted vital information that Colombian fishermen historically ignored, into constructive support that they kept and used. Now the fisherman had a constant reminder of the lionfish threat in a practical useful format.

Every fisherman can catch approx. 6 Lionfish a day. Since each Lionfish can lay 2 million eggs a year, up to 300 million eggs less will populate the Caribbean.
