Very well done documentary based on scientific evidences that show how industrial fishing is bringing to the end of most fish species by 2048.
The End of the Line chronicles how demand for cod off the coast of Newfoundland in the early 1990s led to the decimation of the most abundant cod population in the world, how hi-tech fishing vessels leave no escape routes for fish populations and how farmed fish as a solution is a myth. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.
The film lays the responsibility squarely on consumers who “innocently” buy endangered fish, politicians who ignore the advice and pleas of scientists, fishermen who break quotas and fish illegally, and the global fishing industry that is slow to react to an impending disaster.
But it’s a shame that the only solutions the movie propose are about supporting marine reserves or consuming “certified” seafood… Why they don’t say that the most evident, easy and coherent way to act is simply STOP EATING SEAFOOD?
Just boycott the fishing industry and go vegetarian!
