The Last Bay Scallop? Nantucket Film Fest Screening

Did you miss the spring premier of this thought-provoking local documentary? Now you can purchase tickets for a screening, followed by a panel discussion, during the Nantucket Film Festival.

Nantucket resident and filmmaker John Stanton examines the declining sea scallop harvest threatening Nantucket’s bay scallop fishery. Environmental factors have spread this problem throughout the East Coast and, even in decline, Nantucket remains the last commercially viable scallop fishery. Beyond the industry that’s at stake, Stanton profiles the vital communities of fishermen who are being impacted.
