On July 27 the Islesboro Historical Society & Museum is hosting the Island Institute’s Climate of Change film screening event. This event is free and open to the public. Please show your interest in attending the event on our Facebook page.
The films examine the effects on the fishing industry associated with climate change, including warming waters, lack of biodiversity, and ocean acidification. Across New England and the nation, fishermen and scientists are observing notable shifts in the ecosystem and dramatic changes on the water. These Island Institute films, produced by Scott Sell, will help introduce shellfish aquaculture as an example of economic diversification for fishing communities and will provide excellent opportunities for relationship building and dialog on climate change.
