Three Quarters of the Way to the Goal!

The support is overwhelming! Thank you so much everyone. I am delighted to have met so many people from around the world who have an interest in this subject.

I wanted to share part of a heartfelt email I received from Mike, a former commercial line-fish fisherman from South Africa –

…hopefully, the situation may change in future years, and maybe my great-grandchildren will have the opportunity to live a healthy and satisfying life in the fishing industry should they so choose. For me, I am glad I had the opportunity…..(to fish)

The really sad thing is those who do the most active damage using poor fishing methods and over-exploitation are the large operations with massive lobby groups and legal budgets, and so continue un-shackled. The true fishermen and farmers who have a love for their lifestyle and are closest to the situation are powerless and go unheard. Your video gives all of us a voice.

Mike also linked the trailer to his website

Half way to the goal!!

It is exciting to be half way to the kickstarter fundraising goal!

Thank you to everyone who has supported. Everything helps, the tweets, the facebook updates, the blogs, the backing, the coffee shop talks!

Since starting the Kickstarter campaign, support has flowed in from Australia, South Africa, the United States and Canada. One of my favorite restaurants in Halifax, NS – The Brooklyn Warehouse, said that this documentary brings to light what everyone is striving for! They also placed the trailer on their blog!

Local Cheese

I am sitting here eating local cheese from the Halifax Seaport market – and delighting in its absolute perfect deliciousness. Local food is important, for so many reasons, but the most obvious one is – it tastes so darn good!
