Ocean Frontiers III is a powerful film that chronicles efforts to plan for the healthy, safe, and sustainable future of our oceans. It explores the intersection of national security, maritime commerce, fishing, and recreation, plus expanding industries such as offshore wind energy and aquaculture, coupled with scientific discovery, and tells the story of how ocean planning helps us manage and balance all the uses of our ocean to keep it thriving for generations to come.

The evening will begin with a light reception, followed by the film and post-film Q&A with a panel of local experts.
