As part of the Sanibel Sea School’s fall series of adult learning opportunities, the organization will offer a screening of the documentary “The End of the Line” on Nov. 9 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Small bites and beverages will be offered to guests, and the screening will be followed by a group discussion of global and local fisheries management challenges.

“‘The End of the Line’ is one of my favorite documentaries of all time,” Director of Education Shannon Stainken said. “Many of the world’s fisheries are in decline, but there are easy steps we can take as individuals to support their long-term sustainability. The film outlines the issue beautifully, and the topic is very relevant to us in Southwest Florida.”

The cost to attend is $20 per person; scholarships are available upon request.

The screening is part of a series of classes on the theme of Fisheries Management. The remaining classes in the series are as follows:

– Nov. 16: Social event, “Fish Bingo,” from 4 to 6 p.m.

– Nov. 28: Fly fishing films and discussion, “Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene” and select shorts, from 7 to 9 p.m.

– Nov. 30: Guest lecture with Dr. Ross Boucek, of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, from 4 to 6 p.m.

– Dec. 14: Fly tying workshop with local notaries from 7 to 9 p.m.

– Dec. 7: Ocean ornament making at the annual Luminary Festival (free)

The Sanibel Sea School is also offering a series of educational boat trips for adults in November and December. For more information, visit online at sanibelseaschool.org/sanibel-adult-programs.
