The Boston Center for Adult Education will host a conversation with documentary filmmakers Adam Jones and Darby Duffin, moderated by Roger Berkowitz of Legal Sea Foods

On Monday, March 2, 2015, Jones and Duffin will lead a provocative and timely discussion about their upcoming documentary, “Fish & Men,” which explores the forces threatening the Northeast’s commercial fishing industry. Hosted by the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) and moderated by Roger Berkowitz, CEO and President of Legal Sea Foods, the evening will give insight into where our fish is coming from, who is catching it and how it lands on our plates.

Jones and Duffin’s investigation looks at the current crisis facing the fishing industry as a result of foreign competition, erratic regulations, increasing costs and declining fish stocks. Their documentary reveals how our choices as consumers impact markets and drive change with hopes to spark a movement to improve food safety, save jobs, and protect the marine environment.

A brief trailer will be shown of “Fish & Men” before Roger Berkowitz leads an insightful conversation with Jones and Duffin about their passion around the issues and how and why we must change the way we currently supply seafood in the United States. Immediately following the program Dole & Bailey will host a reception featuring sustainable seafood from Northeast Oceans (Dole & Bailey’s local and sustainable seafood program).
