A Fish Out of Water...


Early on a Saturday morning in Aspen, Colorado, Jamie Mitchell's direction in life was forever changed.  On that morning Surfline published a story about Full Circle, a film documenting a trip he took to South America to visit the Verlasso salmon aquaculture farm, and Jamie suddenly found himself on the defensive.  It wen't on to become one of the most viewed pieces on Surfline.  As you will see, it wasn't all bad, as many people were excited to see such a high profile athlete addressing the topic of aquaculture on one of surfings most popular sites.  Over the next few months a healthy conversation about aquaculture ensued in the comments section and a new personal journey for Jamie Mitchell was born.  You can read all about it on the Surfline website.
