Linda Thornton:  Seeking Sustainability, One Shrimp at a Time, 2011, WINS

Best Shorts Competition for Best Short Documentary Award of Merit

The film that we produced on a pioneering effort to advance sustainable shrimp farming provided a rare opportunity for the public to learn of an environmental success story. The documentary chronicled in detail the steps taken by an environmental innovator, Linda Thornton, to breed and raise shrimp — a staple of middle-class diets from Shanghai to Chicago — without antibiotics and the flows of pollution that have given shrimp farming a bad name in much of the world.   It was produced at a time when the aquaculture industry is considering making suchpractices the new norm.
