Take the journey! Watch the full-feature lionfish documentary that inspired the naming of a US Congressional bill.

Meet the players – Activists are desperately trying to convince government officials to adopt an ingenious lionfish population program. But is it too radical?

Meet the people who experienced the unthinkable – People in Newfoundland who lived through a fishery collapse tell the story of how their lives and culture and economy were changed forever – and they warn US government officials not to make the same mistakes that they did.

Meet the congressman ready to fight – One determined elected official vaults the lionfish issue from the state to federal level but needs our support to turn a creative, sustainable idea into reality.

Dock-U-Mentaries is a co-production of New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park and the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center. Films about the working waterfront are screened on the third Friday of each month beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the theater of the Corson Maritime Learning Center, located at New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, 33 William Street in downtown New Bedford. All programs are open to the public and presented free of charge.
