Putting Fish on the Map.

I bought some old maritime charts a couple of weeks ago, with a vague idea of using them in  some sort of mixed-media way, but it wasn't until I read a quote from W.B. Yeats about the 'mackerel-crowded sea' that any sort of idea crystallised.

It wasn't a massive leap of an idea, because it was essentially 'draw fish on map.'
