About the Film

In May 2000, researchers from universities and non-governmental organizations in 18 countries came together with women fishworkers from Atlantic Canada to talk about some of the changes that are happening in fisheries around the world. They compared experiences, explored the links between local and global change, and talked about how these changes are affecting women and men in fisheries communities.
