One More Dead Fish

60 min.
This film tells the heartwrenching story of environmentally-friendly handline fishermen fighting to survive in a rapidly globalizing industry. As they eke out a meager living on tiny quotas, boats called “bottom trawlers” rake in short-term profits, destroy the environment, catch spawning females, and discard huge amounts of fish. In fascinating interviews with local fishermen, government officials, biologists, and industry CEO’s, we learn about complex regulatory, legislative, and environmental issues involved as six Nova-Scotia fishermen fight for their lives.
