Newburyport: ‘Dead in the Water’ to be screened at Custom House Maritime Museum April 4 at 7:30 p.m.

A new documentary film dealing with the devastating impact of federal regulations on the lives of New England ground fishermen will be shown at a Custom House Maritime Museum fundraising screening April 4 at 7:30 p.m. Wittkower, a graduate of the American Film Institute who has been living and working in Los Angeles since 1981, describes “Dead in the Water” as an examination of “the relentless destruction of the New England ground fishing industry through government regulations, bad science, and the growing, but mistaken, belief that everything has been overfished and there aren’t any fish left in the oceans.” >click to read<10:04
