Please join CCLT and the Island Institute to view four short films which examine the effects of climate change on the fishing industry, including warming waters, lack of biodiversity, and ocean acidification. Across New England and the nation, fishermen and scientists are observing notable shifts in the ecosystem and dramatic changes on the water. This film screening will also introduce shellfish aquaculture as an example of economic diversification for fishing communities. Join us for these four short films and a panel discussion with local experts and fishermen.
Part I - Scientists, managers and fisherman discuss changes in the Maine lobster fishery and how we can and should be planning for the inevitable, but unpredictable, climate impacts on the Gulf of Maine.
Part II - Alaska fisherman share why they are concerned about changing ocean chemistry and its impact on their fisheries and communities.
Part III - Mainers travel to Apalachicola, Florida, once home to one of the most valuable oyster fisheries in the country, to see what happens when a fishery collapses completely and what the community is doing to adapt and revitalize itself.
Part IV - Focuses on a positive future for Maine’s fishing communities through aquaculture and how resource harvesters are viewing farmed shellfish and sea vegetables as a vital way to stay on the water.
Free Event - Everyone is Welcome
CCLT Annual Meeting - The films will follow a brief CCLT business meeting.
