After a summer of Galapagos sharks, Sarah has now made her way to the base of the food chain. This fall she is co-producing and directing a documentary for Maryland Public Television and PBS about menhaden through the Center for Environmental Filmmaking at American University. The show will first air in April during Chesapeake Bay week.

Menhaden: The most important fish in the Bay

Explore the far-reaching impacts of menhaden through the eyes of the men who love this stinky, oily fish for what it contributes to their livelihood, to their heritage, and to the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Spend time on the Bay with charter boat caption Billy Pipkin, and meet pound netter Walter Rodgers, crabber James Eskridge, and conservationist Bill Goldsborough who provide their prospectives on the sustainability of this vulnerable fish and its connection to the future of the Chesapeake Bay.
