The Last Sardine Outpost (1 x 30)
The Last Sardine Outpost is a half hour documentary that explores the world’s largest - and North America’s last remaining - sardine canning plant in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick.
The film reveals the world of sardines: from the pristine waters of the Bay of Fundy to the fishing boats that deliver their silvery bounty to the cannery, and from the bustling processing lines to store shelves around the world.
Blacks Harbour is hailed as the “Sardine Capital of the World” but the longevity of that title is uncertain. The company was recently bought by a group of UK venture capitalists. The future of the cannery – and the entire community – now hangs in the balance.
