Every now and then, my attention is captivated by a video that beckons me to watch it twice. That happened to me today, as I stumbled upon this fantastic explanation of New England fisheries by the folks at WCAI: Cape and Islands NPR Station. I can say with certainty that I know a lot more about the subject than I did prior to watching it, which merits kudos to its producers. With a well paced script written by Steve Junker, simple, yet effective chalk-board drawings by Jenny Junker and overall production by Alecia Orsini, this short film is a winner. I guarantee that after watching this video, you’ll have something to contribute to a conversation on the fisheries system. I know I do!
