Synopsis

Storyline:
Passionate about ocean life, a filmmaker sets out to document the harm that humans do to marine species – and uncovers alarming global corruption.
User Reviews: I thought this documentary was going to be all about the crimes and unethical conducts by the fishing industry. Instead, the film-makers have also illuminated the various non-profits and advocacy groups that are contributing to the destruction of the oceans through their neglect, obfuscation, or – worse – complicity. And governments, too.

This is an eye-opener. And quite depressing at the same time. There doesn’t seem to be any good answer or solution, short of reducing consumption. Which in itself doesn’t seem to very feasible, given that for many people seafood is an important part of their diet, and global population continues to grow. 🙁

The only sliver of hope is perhaps plant-based seafood products. That, like lab-grown meats, for example, seems to be the only realistic way to achieve sustainability. But, as the film ends with, that depends on all of us making a choice.
