The Disappearance


Fisheries Observer

Keith Davis


Keith Davis was an observer, a biologist who took on the duty of observing fisheries around the world to report on compliance, safety, and more. It is a dangerous job, not only because work at sea is inherently treacherous, but also because observers are often considered a threat to the livelihood of many crew and captains.

Despite his professional demeanor and long history of working well with crews on these vessels, something went terribly wrong on a voyage off the coast of Peru in 2015. Keith Davis disappeared. No formal investigation has ever produced answers, so an effort is being made to undertake a private investigation, with possible political implications.

The international fisheries business is behind major environmental threats but still, illegal fishing continues unchecked, endangering not only our ecosystem, but the socioeconomic stability of entire continents, not to mention the daily safety concerns to workers involved in this industry.
