CNN's GREAT BIG STORY
Jose Remi Productions teamed up with CNN's Great Big Story to tell the story of Antonio Negron, a free-diving spear fisherman from Culebra, Puerto Rico. The film chronicles a day in the life of one of the most passionate individuals we've ever met. Join him on a dive into the waters of Culebra, Puerto Rico and understand the importance of catching only what you need to survive.

To track commercial fishing activity around the world, SkyTruth, a small nonprofit based in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, has recently launched Global Fishing Watch in partnership with Google and Oceana.
During our time in Culebra we met some truly inspiring individuals. The wild-child Amanda Galasso was one of them. Our last four hours on the island were spent with her, filming as much as we could in the little time we had. We're to pick this project back up in June, when we all road trip together up the east coast, and film more of Amanda surfing.
