Ocean Frontiers is a documentary film about future ocean management planning efforts that will have a dramatic impact to all people, not just our fishing communities. Ocean Frontiers presents one perspective and makes the argument that better management decisions can utilize multiple ocean uses. Ocean Frontiers is a film that should be seen by all coastal communities to learn the implications of “marine spatial planning.”
Sea Commons, the sponsor of the film, is a group of concerned Gloucester citizens interested in promoting a regional dialogue/public forum about the future of our Seas, the last public commons.
