2001, 55 minutes
How to deal with a changing ocean? This is a defining question of our moment in history. In this film, we witness the story of the North Atlantic Fisheries and the challenges they face in terms of both ecosystem and fisheries management. This film begins with the confrontations in Newfoundland when the Grand Banks closed. Then it quickly moves to the Gulf of Maine, where we hear from many of the stakeholders involved- lobster and groundfish community members, marine scientists and fisheries managers. Narrated by Will Lyman.
