PBS’ Saving the Ocean: Octopus Fishing in Pemba (web segment)

After completing production on the ten-part series, Saving the Ocean, Director John Angier noticed that we were left with a tonne of unused, but fantastic, footage that could not make it to the half-hour broadcast shows. We then turned some of that unused footage into video extras for online streaming.

It’s a whole different world out there. In ‘Octopus Fishing in Pemba‘, watch men and boys, from Pemba’s fishing villages, free dive to catch octopuses for sale and consumption.  This is a web segment from Saving the Ocean’s episode on Pemba, a beautiful east African island- The Sacred Island’.
