The CFRF is excited to announce the premiere of the ‘Harvesting RI Series: RI Fishing Community Documentary” on Rhode Island PBS, Friday, August 23, 2019 at 8pm (channel 8, HD channel 508).
The documentary was a collaborative effort between Caserta Productions, the RI fishing community, and the Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation. This film promotes public awareness, explores how traditional systems can be creatively maintained and become more dynamic, and covers how fishermen have responded to changing technology and markets. The project was funded by a USDA Rural Business Development Grant.
The CFRF would like to thank the fishermen and fishing industry members who generously gave their time to participate in this documentary.
