As a Smithsonian affiliate, the Mercer Museum is proud to partner with the Smithsonian Channel to host two screenings of the Smithsonian Channel’s Earth Conservation documentary, “An Ocean Mystery: The Missing Catch,” in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Is the world running out of fish? According to an unconventional and comprehensive study by marine biologist Dr. Daniel Pauly, we have drastically underestimated the true number of fish caught globally and must change our ways soon or face disaster. Join Dr. Pauly and his team as they travel around the globe to talk to commercial fishermen, charter boat operators, and even seafood restaurant managers to determine just how much fish we really catch, and what we must do to help us save our seas.
