A New Film Examines "Why Aren't We Growing Our Own Fish?"

That’s the question posed by “The Working Waterfront,a new film which aims to educate consumers on the current status of aquaculture in the United States.

The film makers visit farms raising catfish in Alabama, salmon in Washington state, and oysters and mussels in Maine. The farmers talk about their commitment to environmental responsibility, economic benefits to their communities, and producing locally grown, high quality products for their customers. They also discuss challenges to growing a robust U.S.-based aquaculture community.
Over 90% of the seafood Americans eat is imported from overseas, and half of that amount is from aquaculture. The U.S. has ample coastlines, infrastructure, and research and development capability to produce all of the seafood the country demands in an environmentally sound manner. Lack of consistent, coordinated permitting processes and a lingering outdated perception of aquaculture are cited as obstacles to increasing the supply of locally grown fish and seafood.
The video was funded by the Soy Aquaculture Alliance and the United Soybean Board to educate the public about the advances made by U.S. aquaculture. To view “The Working Waterfront” click on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGgtS4v9WBM
