Fishermen tell the story of the Maine cod fishery, which has never been worse than the present, and the lobster fishery, which has never been better. Archival footage shows that lobster harvests have not always been so abundant. Fifty years ago they also crashed.

Since then a conservation ethic has evolved within the industry. Now lobster harvesters speak with pride of their booming industry. Using aquaculture, cod fishermen have begun to work with scientists to enhance stocks. If cod returns, how can harvesters work to conserve the resource upon which they depend?
