Description

 

What does climate change and New England's lobster industry have to do with the last land border dispute between Canada and the United States?

Learn about this climate-fueled international conflict at the screening of the award-winning feature film, Lobster War, co-sponsored by ReVision Energy.

As part of Eat Local Month, the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, in partnership with MDAR and the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, is presenting a screening of Lobster War on August 6th at the Brattle Theater. The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the director, David Abel from the Boston Globe.

See the trailer here!

Lobster War is an award-winning feature film about a climate-fueled conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty.
