American Fisheries – 39min
American Fisheries explores the complex and violent
history of the 500-year-old North Atlantic Cod Fishery.
From England to Iceland to Canada to the US,
scientists have announced that 90% of fish worldwide
today are gone due to over fishing. This film explores
the historical battleground of the fishing industry and
brings to light one of the most significant
environmental disasters in history. With never-before-
seen footage and vibrant personal stories, ?American
Fisheries? takes you on a journey inside the
battleground of special interest groups,
environmentalists and government regulators who are
fighting to control the use of an already exhausted
resource.
