End of the Line - The world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing

Imagine a World Without Fish - Sea Shepherd
excerpts from above:
Quote:
End of the LineAlready showing in cinemas across the U.S., Charles Clover’s film The End of the Line was launched in the UK on June 8th which was World Oceans Day.

Sea Shepherd’s UK Director Steve Roest and volunteer Mark Sanders-Barwick attended a special preview screening of the film at the IMAX cinema in London on June 1st.
Quote:
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.
The End of the Line points to solutions that are simple and doable, but political will and activism are crucial to solve this international problem.
We need to control fishing by reducing the number of fishing boats across the world, protect large areas of the ocean through a network of marine reserves off limits to fishing, and educate consumers that they have a choice to end their seafood consumption entirely for the benefit of all ocean ecosystems.

It sounds like something I'd like to view........... I'll have to see if it is playing nearby or rent able.
