Filmmaker David Kaltenbach traveled on behalf of Blue Water Fishermen’s Association along the Eastern seaboard, from Gloucester MA to Beaufort, NC interviewing longline fishermen. With a common thread interwoven amongst them, they commented on bluefin tuna and the issues that would arise if the longline industry was shut down after their small bluefin quota was met. 

Sea Stories
