Through this eye-opening documentary, producer Alex Caserta, director and editor Soren Sorensen, and director of photography Jason Rossi, explore the concept of buying local fresh seafood - the boat to table idea - and the benefits.

Interviews with fishermen on location at Pier 9 and Point Judith, provide an inside look at the diverse collection of individuals who work on the docks, and how each of their jobs support the industry.
