Of the Sea
Fishermen, Seafood & Sustainability
Fishermen are the stewards of the last wild food on our planet. What can we learn from them about the ocean and our relationship to it?
Today, fishing is a rare and challenging way of life – Few California fishing families remain, due to complex regulations, high cost, and competition with cheap farmed and imported seafood. Struggling to revive a fading way of life, fishermen and entrepreneurs are creating new models for how to support sustainably produced seafood.
In the film, we learn from fishermen about the Salmon, Black Cod, Sea Urchin, Crab and Squid fisheries, and the challenges they face. "Of the Sea" tells the story of five California fishermen, and shows how our seafood choices can influence ocean sustainability.
