As evidenced by their historic efforts developing a unified plan for local implementation of the Marine Life Protection Act, the community on California's north coast sticks together. And they are committed to supporting sustainable fishing to ensure the region's long-term economic well-being.


As evidenced by their historic efforts developing a unified plan for local implementation of the Marine Life Protection Act, the community on California's north coast sticks together. And they are committed to supporting sustainable fishing to ensure the region's long-term economic well-being. To that end, Ocean Conservancy, Humboldt Surfrider and Humboldt Baykeeper are hosting an extra special Ocean Night at Arcata Theatre Lounge this evening to benefit tsunami relief in Del Norte County. Donations from the event will go toward The Redwood Regional Rotary Relief Super Fund to provide support and assistance to Del Norte County fishermen devastated by the tsunami.

Ocean Night has been occurring monthly since 2009, featuring movies and presentations designed to educate and inspire. The event is all-ages, and donation-based. Tonight's event is sponsored by Lost Coast Communications radio stations KHUM 104.3/7 FM and KSLG 94.1 FM and includes a post-film raffle. It will include screenings of two movies: Drive-Thru Japan, a “search for waves in the land of the rising sun” and Baja Wave Document, directed by veteran Hollywood film editor Chris Figler, portraying the efforts of WiLDCOAST and fishermen in Baja California to preserve the last wild coastlines of the peninsula.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., movies start at 7 p.m. For updates on this and future Ocean Night events, see arcatatheater.com, surfrider.org/humboldt, humboldtbaykeeper.org and caloceans.org.
