Friday, December 11, 7:00 pm – What We Fish For


The world premiere of Ted Caplow’s and Andy Danylchuk’s newest documentary What We Fish For will be on Dec 11th (7:00 PM) at the New England Aquarium’s IMAX as part of the Boston Globe’s GlobeDoc series. Dr. Ted Caplow is an environmental engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur, and the founder of Fish Navy Films LLC. He brings his expertise in sustainable food production and energy management together with his love of the sea to create films that both educate and stimulate the viewer. Film making is a natural outlet for Dr. Caplow’s analytical nature and creative impulses, and his goal is to balance entertainment with truth to discover compelling solutions to some 21st century dilemmas.

After studying energy and then pollution dynamics at Harvard, Princeton, and Columbia, Ted left academia to explore his passion for sustainable design, ultimately creating the Science Barge in 2006. This hydroponic urban farm, open to the public, has been deployed on the Hudson River since 2007. The barge uses sunlight, biofuel, and captured rainwater to grow premium quality vegetables in the heart of urban areas, and hosts thousands of school children each year. Ted also invented the Vertical Integrated Greenhouseâ„¢, a high-yield hydroponic growing system for building facades and large atriums that offers world-leading efficiencies in land and water use.
