Celebration of Local Fishing at Camden Opera House

Camden, ME -

Fishing Vessel Capt'n Lee of Port Clyde, ME.

CAMDEN – The Fish Belong to the People, William Hyler’s feature-length documentary will be screened at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 at the Camden Opera House.
The film premiered at the Camden International Film Festival in 2009, and has since become an important resource for those seeking to understand the challenges that the fisheries now face. The film focuses on the efforts of a group of family fishermen in Port Clyde who have come together as the Midcoast Fishermen’s Cooperative (MFC) to save their fishery using environmentally friendly methods and selling directly to their customers under the brand name Port Clyde Fresh Catch.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a pre-screening selection of hors d’oeuvres prepared by chefs from Paolina’s Way and Café Miranda, as well as, Scott Yakovenko, formerly of Port Clyde Seafood Co. Freshly-caught fish for the evening will be provided by MFC.
Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with fisherman Glen Libby, president of the MFC and chairman of the Midcoast Fishermen’s Association, Jennifer Litteral, Policy Director for the Island Institute, Senator Chris Rector, who serves on Maine’s Business, Research and Economic Development Committee and Marine Resources Committee, and filmmaker William Hyler. Rob Kelley, a member of the Midcoast Maine Fishing Heritage Alliance, will moderate.
