Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. This is the future if we do not stop, think, and act!
Directed by Rupert Murray and filmed over two years, The End Of The Line is the world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing and 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.
But as dire as things may seem, Murray’s film concludes that change is possible, and makes very clear recommendations for solving this crisis by presenting specific steps consumers, corporations, and governments can take.
