Redpath Museum 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C4, CA
(PBS, 2002) Documentary exploring the immense changes threatening marine fisheries worldwide and efforts being made to restore and sustain them. The film begins with a sequence of stunning images that reveal the immense volume and diversity of fish caught in a seemingly limitless ocean. From Indonesia to Japan to the Bering Sea, the camera documents an ever-growing, high-tech fishing effort that yields over 100 million metric tons of seafood a year. These marine fisheries provide food, income and employment for 200 million people worldwide, but how long can the massive hunt be sustained? Free with donation to museum
