No Going Back: New Ideas from a Tsunami-hit Fishing Town
The 2011 tsunami devastated the fishing industry in Sanriku, in northeastern Japan. Like others, seafood processor Kenichiro Yagi and local fishermen are trying to recover and rebuild their business.

We follow them as they explore the future of the local fishing industry.
