Hope In the Water: Exploring Seafood Solutions

An official trailer for Hope In the Water – a documentary series exploring seafood solutions – has been released, giving a small taste of the character driven stories yet to come.

The series travels the globe to discover the creative solutions and breakthrough seafood technologies that could not only provide food, but help save threatened seas and fresh waterways. The series highlights the stories of amazing innovators, aquafarmers, and fishers who are working toward a sustainable future for the planet.

“Through Hope In the Water we are on a mission to reimagine a planet where both ecological balance and food abundance are possible. Our series is a fresh take on how we can rewrite menus worldwide that will create a meaningful and lasting impact for generations to come,” said series producer David Kelley, in a press release announcing the project.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

  1. Goal 2: Zero Hunger
  2. Goal 14: Life Below Water
  3. Goal 15: Life on Land

Throughout the series celebrated environmental enthusiasts Shailene Woodley, Martha Stewart, José Andrés and Baratunde Thurston reveal aquatic ecosystems jeopardised by climate change, habitat destruction, irresponsible fishing, and exploitation. They are each authentically tied to a particular story, seeking smart solutions to a planet in peril.

Shailene Woodley’s Story

  • Actor and environmental activist Shailene Woodley grew up surfing the California coast.
  • She has witnessed firsthand how “zombie” purple urchins have taken over and destroyed kelp forests.
  • She goes underwater with urchin divers who collect the barren urchins and deliver them to a farm where their buttery roe is grown and harvested.
  • This turns an ecological imbalance into a commodity whilst helping to save kelp forests at the same time.

“It’s my hope that through this important work, we can collectively practice better alternatives that will nourish communities across the planet and sustain our waters,” said Woodley.

Hope In the Water is part of a multi-year impact campaign led by the non-profit Fed by Blue. The mission of Fed by Blue is to provide and inspire visionaries, thought leaders, ocean lovers, activists, early adopters, foodies, and consumers with the knowledge and materials to help protect and participate in a responsible blue food system.

Launch of the Series

The trailer for Hope In the Water is out now, ahead of the launch of the series in June, 2024.

SDGs, Targets, and Indicators

SDGs Targets Indicators
SDG 2: Zero Hunger 2.4: By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality. The article discusses breakthrough seafood technologies and aquafarmers working towards a sustainable future for the planet, which aligns with the target of implementing resilient agricultural practices and maintaining ecosystems.
SDG 14: Life Below Water 14.2: By 2020, sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts, including by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration in order to achieve healthy and productive oceans. The article highlights the threats faced by aquatic ecosystems due to climate change, habitat destruction, irresponsible fishing, and exploitation. It emphasizes the need to protect and restore these ecosystems, aligning with the target of sustainably managing marine and coastal ecosystems.
SDG 15: Life on Land 15.1: By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements. The article mentions the destruction of kelp forests by “zombie” purple urchins and the efforts to save them. This aligns with the target of ensuring the restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems.
