Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship

Ocean Frontiers FINAL Image Play Button

Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship takes the viewer on an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country—from the busy shipping lanes of Boston Harbor to a small fishing community in the Pacific Northwest; from America’s coral reefs in the Florida Keys to the nation’s premier seafood nursery in the Mississippi Delta. The documentary introduces an intermingling of unlikely allies: industrial shippers and whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists, sport fishers and reef snorkelers, and many more, all embarking on a new course of cooperation in the effort to sustain the sea and our ocean economies. Introduction by director Karen Anspacher-Meyer, and discussion with Laura McKay, Joe Atangan, Gwynn Crichton, and Jay Odell
