Core Sounders - Living from the Sea

For the Core Sound residents of Eastern Carteret County, commercial fishing has been a way of life for three centuries. But the sustained seclusion that has protected their culture is fast eroding. The traditional character of the community is challenged on all sides by development, pollution and globalization, with the family fisheries and their heritage hanging in the balance. Culled from hundreds of hours of interview and documentary footage, this Core Sounders DVD paints a vivid portrait of life on the water and conveys the profound sense of belonging that defines life on the edge of the sea.
