Today, 91% of the seafood in America is imported as the U.S. is flooded with six billion tons of foreign seafood. Consumers eat blissfully unaware of where their seafood comes from much less the dire consequences that consumer demand for specific fish has placed on our oceans.
FISH & MEN exposes the high cost of cheap fish in the modern seafood economy and the forces threatening local fishing communities and public health by revealing how our choices as consumers drives the global seafood trade.
But, a new movement is underway – an opportunity to return sustainability to both fish and fishermen. Thriving on local communities, pioneering fishermen and celebrated chefs are leading a revolutionary new supply-based model – a ‘Catch of the Day’ revival based on local, seasonal, sustainable fish – where consumers are induced to discover new varieties of storied seafood and reconnect them once again to those who risk their lives to harvest from the sea.
