An independent strategic coastal partnership

Dorset Coastal Stories is a series of short films which showcase the opportunities in commercial fishing and aquaculture in Dorset. 

Sam’s story is the first in a series of 4 films, all based in Dorset, which follow the stories of local young adults and their pathways into fishing and aquaculture. Three more films will follow later in the year, so watch this space.  Please do watch and share this inspiring story!
