Fish & Men
For centuries, cod has fed the world and built our nation. Today the iconic American fisherman is caught in a perfect storm of foreign competition, erratic regulations, and declining fish stocks—all while scientists struggle to count fish, and conservationists struggle to save them. In a changing ocean where ‘sustainability’ is a geopolitical buzzword, this film will explore the complex forces at work in geopolitics, global trade, and consumer behavior, and offer concrete solutions to save a 400-year-old American industry. Survival means preserving the species, employing the fishermen, and feeding the world. This film Fish & Men attempts to reveal to consumers what they don’t know about where their fish comes from, who is catching it, and how it lands on their plate.
Co-directors Adam Jones and Darby Duffin will discuss and share clips from their upcoming documentary Fish & Men. Their presentation will be critiqued by a reaction panel consisting of a diverse cast representing the stakeholder groups presented in the film. Panel participants are: Mark Helvey, program lead, NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region; Peter Halmay, commercial urchin fisherman; and Kim Thompson, program manager, Seafood for the Future.
