Of the Sea: Fishermen, Seafood, and Sustainability


Film Screening
Of the Sea: Fishermen, Seafood, and Sustainability

Join us for a special film screening followed by an engaging discussion. The film, Of the Sea, tells the story of five California fishermen and demonstrates how seafood choices can influence ocean sustainability. Today, small scale fishing is a rare and challenging profession, and fewer fishing families remain in the industry. Struggling to revive a fading way of life, American fishermen and entrepreneurs are creating new models for responsibly produced seafood. In the film, we learn from fishermen about the salmon, black cod, sea urchin, crab, and squid fisheries along the California coast. Melissa Stevens, co-producer of the film, will host a question and answer session following the film.
