Trailer for the documentary Fishing Pono: Living in Harmony With the Sea.
A co-production of Kauai based filmmaker Teresa Tico, Honolulu based Pacific Islanders In Communication, and the Corporation For Public Broadcasting, FFishing Pono: Living in Harmony With the Sea tells the story of Native Hawaiians on the island of Molokai who are using ancient conservation methods to restore fisheries in the waters of their island. Featuring life long fisherman Kelson 'Mac' Poepoe, and directed by award winning helmer Mary Lambert, Fishing Pono's graphic images of the commercial exploitation of Pacific fisheries leaves no room for doubt that current practices are unsustainable and will leave nothing for future generations. Mr. Poepoe's fishing conservation program on Molokai, based on historical practices, is an inspiring story of how one community turned the tide on a seemingly doomed resource.
