A Different Kind of Farm
Documentary Feature, 63 minutes, USA
Directed by Caroline Harding
In 1998, aquaculturists Carol and Craig Schmarr quit their jobs, packed their bags, and moved to Hawaii where they used their life savings to build the world's first seahorse farm to fight against their alarmingly low population. The only hitch - the seahorse had never been bred in captivity and they were told by scientists it was impossible. This is the story of how they discovered the secret, their endeavor to challenge the pet-trade industry, and how they are educating the public about the large number of fish taken yearly from the world's reefs.
