Fishing Boat

Our planet’s resources are finite. We are being confronted with this reality more and more everyday. Recent studies have reported that over-fishing is devastating the world’s oceans as a result of our increased food demands. Fisherman often get singled out and lambasted for the problem. This recent NY Magazine article reports that “the truth about commercial fishing in the United States is that [the present] regulatory framework designed to limit overfishing results in vast numbers of fish per year being scooped up on boats and dumped right back off, dead, never consumed by any human.”

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
