Independent Lens: A Fish Story

2006 NR

Directors Courtney Hayes and Tim Gallagher stay close to their Massachusetts roots for this fascinating documentary that explores the battle between New England's close-knit fishing communities and a coalition of environmental conservationists. Focusing on two women whose lives and livelihoods have revolved around the fishing business, the film illuminates the debate that pits the economic needs of a community against the health of our oceans.
