TRANSITION Town Exmouth is hosting a special screening of a film on the future of Exmouth's fishing heritage called Think Deep at Exmouth Community College.

A collaborative project between ECC and Natural England, Think Deep was produced as an educational resource by local media company Pangaea TV. The film follows a group of college students as they explore environmental, economic and social sustainability.

The film, featuring stunning underwater footage shot by Blue Planet cameraman Doug Anderson, is presented by three Exmouth

Community College students, and stars local celebrity chef Michael Caines. Challenged to find out more about where the fish they eat comes from, the students visit local suppliers including award-winning Exmouth mussel farmer Myles Blood Smyth and local fishmonger Dave Kurley.

"The South West has some of the best seafood in Europe,' said Michael Caines.

"And I am keen to support projects which encourage young people to take a more active interest in local food and sustainability."
