[Movie only] America’s Fish and Fisheries – Shared through the Camera Lens – A 2015 AFS Film Festival Part 1
Over 60 short films will be featured during the first ever AFS Fish Film Festival. America’s Fish and Fisheries – Shared through the Camera Lens – A 2015 AFS Film Festival showcases films that focus on the connections between people, fish and fisheries, the unique life cycles and habitat needs of different species, and how resource practitioners and ordinary people are helping conserve fish and their habitats across the nation. The films are from a variety of perspectives—including commercial and sport fishermen, subsistence users, researchers and managers, volunteers, landowners, and even fish themselves. Films will be grouped into themes covering general conservation topics, habitat protection and restoration, fisheries enhancement, sport fishing, fisheries management, and fisheries research and education. These films will provide a unique vantage point to view successes and challenges in fisheries conservation and will also enhance awareness of our nation’s fisheries and the many ways in which we’re connected to fish and all the goods and services they provide.
