Four reporters/commentators from the region shared the “making of the story” and everything they’ve learned about Fish Farms, the closures, the controversies, what’s at stake for rural communities, what this means for you. And we also heard more about the burgeoning movement of Seaweed Farming which is starting right here on Cortes Island and may be a model of sustainable development and reconciliation for small communities.
