Hi, this is Mariah, an ichythyology student here at MLML. I want to let you know that a local non-governmental organization (NGO) I work for, FishWise, is hosting a screening of The End of the Line, an amazing documentary about the global overfishing of our oceans.
This documentary is excellent, as it is based in science – you will hear from leading scientists such as Daniel Pauly and Ray Hilborn in the film. This film also reminds us of the global nature of overfishing the oceans, as what we do here in California affects the rest of the world, and vice versa.
After the film we will have a panel with local NGOs, New Leaf Markets, and H&H Fish to discuss what we can do as individuals and as a community to address overfishing. Please join us as we talk about how to make choices in our lives to help solve the overfishing problem. I hope to see other fish fans there too!
Screening is December 16th (Wed) at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz, starting at 6:30pm. Tickets are $3 at the door.
