This documentary examines the global effects of overfishing and how the devastation we wreak on marine life now has consequences that will come sooner than we realize. With gorgeous deep sea footage, this film travels the world, from the coasts of Senegal, Alaska, Newfoundland, the straits of Gibraltar to the fish markets of Tokyo and beyond. Investigative reporter Charles Clover confronts politicians with other priorities and celebrity chefs who fuel the public's passion for the nearly extinct bluefin tuna and other endangered fish. If we continue fishing as we do, scientists predict we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. But The End of the Line also explores ways that consumers, corporations and governments can stop the crisis and protect our marine life, as a food source, and to sustain healthy balance in our world's oceans.
