Walking Fish Draws Praise, Shows Movie

You may have already heard of the Duke University’s student chapter of the American Fishery Society, DukeFish, establishing the new Durham-based community-supported fishery (CSF) – the first of its kind in the southeastern United States.

They are showing a documentary at 7 p.m., Nov. 29 in the
Levine Science Research Center at 308 Research Drive on the Duke campus. The movie is the Fish Belong to the People. The movie follows a group of family fishermen in Port Clyde, Maine as they work to save their fishing grounds from government, market structure, and themselves.

In a recent newsletter, Wats Grocery’s Amy Tornquist said:

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed meeting the folks from Walking Fish (www.walking-fish.org). They are the masterminds of the CSF (community supported fish) project that is about to complete its 12 week pilot. If you want to learn more or get on their waitlist for March, log on to their website. What they are doing for NC is amazing!
