If you are someone who is just diving into the world of websites and thinking about making one yourself or having one built for you, you may have come across terms like “dynamic” or “static website” or “responsive websites” and “content management systems”.

We recently did a mini-documentary about the lobster conservation and study efforts being undertaken off the east coast of Newfoundland in the area of the Eastport Peninsula. The study takes place in the Eastport Marine Protected area (or EMPA ) and is a joint project between the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Eastport Lobster Protection Committee.
We went up for 5 days in total over two trips, with the first trip being to scout locations and take aerial drone footage of the area, and the second trip we went out on the boat with members of DFO to film lobster harvesters at work and get more aerial footage from out on the ocean.
