1. “Lessons Learned from an Artisanal Fishery” is a film about a small fishing community in Tárcoles, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. After commercial fishing boats and unsustainable fishing methods caused a decline in their catch, the fishermen in Tárcoles established a cooperative organization to promote sustainable fishing practices. This film brings to light the lessons learned by the community through their cooperative efforts and outreach programs. The film also sheds light on the threats faced by small-scale fisheries and why it is important to merge traditional and scientific knowledge to secure our oceans.
