 Program Description

How do we meet our ever-expanding demands on the ocean, without destroying it? The answer is explored in Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship, a film produced by Green Fire Productions. This award-winning film portrays inspiring stories of citizens coming together for the sake of their sea.

Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship takes us on an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country—from the busy shipping lanes of Boston Harbor to a small fishing community in the Pacific Northwest; from America’s coral reefs in the Florida Keys to the nation’s premier seafood nursery in the Mississippi Delta. Here we meet an intermingling of unlikely allies, of industrial shippers and whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists, sport fishers and reef snorkelers and many more, all of them embarking on a new course of cooperation, to sustain the sea and our ocean economies.

Ocean Frontiers is screening across the country and around the world to rave reviews. The film leaves audiences with sense of hope that change is possible through collaboration and science-based decision making that benefit our ocean and ocean economies.

Ocean Frontiers, The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship is distributed by American Public Television, a leading provider of award-winning programs to public television stations nationwide.
