The Island Institute is hosting a series of screening events showcasing their “Climate of Change” film series, including a special event at Waterman's. In conjunction with North Haven Conservation Partners, and a panel discussion with Rob Snyder, Nick Batista and film maker, Scott Sell of the Island Institute, with Adam Cooper of NH Oyster Farm.
The films examine the effects on the fishing industry associated with climate change, including warming waters, lack of biodiversity, and ocean acidification. Across New England and the nation, fishermen and scientists are observing notable shifts in the ecosystem and dramatic changes on the water. These Island Institute film screenings will help introduce shellfish aquaculture as an example of economic diversification for fishing communities and will prove to be excellent opportunities for relationship building and dialogue exchange on climate change.
$10 admission at the door.
