New Hampshire Crowdfunding Update: FISH & MEN

Now on our New Hampshire crowdfunding page, FISH & MEN, a documentary by Darby Duffin and Adam Jones. The Kickstarter campaign is seeking to raise $25,000 by December 31, 2014. They write:

"For centuries, cod fed the world and built our nation. But today, the iconic American fisherman is caught in a perfect storm of foreign competition, erratic regulations, increasing costs and declining fish stocks. As scientists struggle to count fish, and conservationists attempt to save them, America's oldest fishing community - Gloucester, Massachusetts is dying. Fishermen are losing their livelihood and even their homes. Last year, NOAA imposed a historic cut to the cod quota -- a 78% catch reduction. Then, on Nov. 10, 2014 -- the U.S. government closed the Gulf of Maine. FISH & MEN explores the forces threatening our commercial fishing industry and depicts how our choices as consumers impact markets and drive change. Finally, we hope the solutions featured in this film will spark a movement to improve food safety, save jobs and protect the marine environment."
