FishSpan is pioneering a new concept in the fishing realm. Broadcast programs may be viewed through the webcast show of Fishspan's Archival website,  global satellite networks, cable access programming, cellular phones, all information highways to ensure communication, exposure and distribution. 

In all the years David has been shooting the fishing industry up and down the east coast, he's discovered that the fishermen, recreational, party / charter captains, and the commercial sector, do not have a media conduit or an avenue to communicate. He then came up with the creation of FishSpan, Broadcasting Global Fish News, worldwide. has it's own creative innovative broadcast platform.  Not only reporting global fish news, but creating re-enactments of 'Salty Dog' Sea Stories, filming chefs at the Dockside Kitchen segway, producing series of historical featurettes, regular updates from around the world ... and Washington D.C.  That's only a few aspects of the show.

Blue Water Fishermen's Association

Filmmaker David Kaltenbach traveled on behalf of Blue Water Fishermen’s Association along the Eastern seaboard, from Gloucester MA to Beaufort, NC interviewing longline fishermen. With a common thread interwoven amongst them, they commented on bluefin tuna and the issues that would arise if the longline industry was shut down after their small bluefin quota was met.

​Filmmaker for the Fishermen

David Kaltenbach is among those who are looking to bring the fishing industry to the forefront through professionally choreographed film productions, distribution and marketing, innovative dynamic public relations and strategic planning.  Kaltenbach, who is formally schooled in biological oceanography, has worked in the field and lab as a marine scientist. David  proves he's just at home on the water as he is behind the lens of the camera.  The transition from biologist was a natural transformation that led to broadcast programs, full length feature films and documentaries. Because of his eclectic background, David speaks the same language with the fishermen, the research scientists and the advocates of the fishing industry.  

To recognize individuals and/or entities that exhibit outstanding professionalism and commitment to promote the health, success, and sustainability of New Jersey's commercial seafood industry through diligence and innovation.

During my interim of going out to sea and filming for the fishermen, I have always asked the individual to speak to me about the most harrowing experience while on the ocean.
