Anchovies, like Herring, are often called forage fish because whales, seabirds, sharks, tuna, salmon, dolphins and sea lions heavily rely on them for food. Anchovies are the great connector of sea and sky, things seen and unseen. Humans have decimated wild populations. Rather than eat these delicious fish, mostly we grind them up for fishmeal to make animal feed, fertilizer and other agriculture products.

This hat is part of the Medicine Hat series: healing our relationship to the wild.
As we look to the wild, we are inundated with stories of loss: loss of species, diversity, and regard. But we also see stories of hope, dedication, and resilience. Our hats pay respect to some of those stories and support Mad Agriculture’s work to bring the wild back into consideration on the farm.
