The End Of The Line: Imagine A World Without Fish
The End of the Line: A World Without Fish, follows investigative reporter Charles Clover as he travels the world documenting the destructive practices of the fishing industry. Scientists predict if we continue as we are doing now that by the year 2048 we will see the end of most seafood. Stocks will have depleted because of overfishing, destructive practices and climate change. For example our global love affair with sushi is fuelling the extinction of bluefin tuna which is impacting marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish. No fish means certain mass starvation as many countries depend on fish as food.
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. But it is not all gloom and doom, we can change this through activism and political will. A different world is possible but 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 by purchasing fish from independently certified sustainable fisheries.
