Today, fishing is a rare and challenging way of life – the number of fishing vessels in California has declined from over 6, 900 in 1981 to just 1, 800 vessels today. Few California fishing families remain, due to complex regulations, high cost, and competition with cheap farmed and imported seafood. Struggling to revive a fading way of life, fishermen and entrepreneurs are creating new models for how to support sustainably produced seafood. OF THE SEA tells the story of 5 California fishermen and presents a compelling story of the future of sustainable seafood.


A film about fishermen, seafood & sustainability. What can we learn about the ocean and our relationship to it? by Mischa Hedges.
