The Last Bay Scallop?
Nantucket resident and documentarian John Stanton examines the declining sea scallop harvest threatening Nantucket’s bay scallop fishery. Environmental factors have spread this problem throughout the East Coast and, even in decline, Nantucket remains the last commercially viable scallop fishery. Beyond the industry that’s at stake, Stanton profiles the vital communities of fishermen who are being impacted.
Screening followed by a talk with filmmaker John Stanton, fisherman Carl Sjolund, and town shellfish biologist Tara Anne Riley.
