Food Forward: Go Fish!


By mid­century, 90 percent of the world’s commercial fish may be tapped out. But we’re not sunk yet. Food Forward TV sets sail with a different breed of fishermen who make their living on the water while also treading lightly upon it. Meet old school fishermen in the Pacific Northwest reviving the tuna industry, young fishermen (and women) creating Community Supported Fisheries along the Eastern seaboard and the next generation of fish farmers in Western Massachusetts.
