Join LLTK for a screening of the PBS documentary “The Fish On My Plate”

How do humans affect fish?
How do fish affect humans?
How does the human-fish relationship affect the ecosystem?

Join Long Live the Kings, the nonprofit behind the Glenwood Springs Salmon Hatchery to explore these questions with a special, curated screening of “The Fish on My Plate”, a 2017 Frontline documentary exploring the complex connections between fish, humans, health, and conservation.

Where: Eastsound Odd Fellows Hall – 112 Haven Road, Eastsound, WA 98245

When: Thursday, September 14th – 6:30pm

Suggested donation is $5/person. All proceeds support Long Live the Kings and the Glenwood Springs Salmon Hatchery.

LLTK Executive Director, Jacques White Ph.D, will provide context for the documentary and serve as moderator of a post-screening Q&A session. In light of the recent escapement of Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound, the relationship between fish and people requires careful reflection and community discussion more than ever.

Jacques will supplement the dialogue with current scientific findings, and share how Long Live the Kings’ work to recover salmon and steelhead in Puget Sound and the Salish Sea intersects with “The Fish on My Plate”.

“The Fish on My Plate”

Best-selling author and lifelong fisherman Paul Greenberg spends a year eating fish at breakfast, lunch and dinner to help answer the question: “What fish should I eat that’s good for me and good for the planet?” Greenberg travels from Peru to Norway in this documentary that tracks Greenberg’s year-long journey to identify which fish are the healthiest for human consumption and what our involvement can mean to the ecosystem as a whole. He also examines challenges to harvest of wild fish and aquaculture which is especially relevant in light of recent events in Puget Sound.
