Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, a modern wave of big ships, energy industries and a changing climate, is now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. Ocean Frontiers II is an inspiring story of citizens working together for healthier economies and healthier seas across New England. Directed and produced by Karen Anspacher-Meyer and Ralf Meyer.
