Fourth Friday attendees were treated to “Of the Sea,” a captivating, up-close look at the lives of people who make their living fishing off the California Coast.
Filmmaker Mischa Hedges described his motivation and experiences making the film, which profiles people who work tirelessly at sea to support their families, while also supporting efforts to sustain local fisheries for the next generation.
All of us can support the effort by making conscious decisions when buying seafood:
- Follow guidelines, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guidelines, which are available in print and as a smartphone app.
- Purchase from local sources, whenever possible. Ask your seafood purveyor where the seafood comes from, and let them know that it matters to you.
- Join a CSF (Community Supported Fish), such as Real Good Fish.
