Quotes

Narrator: Fishing is one of the most wasteful practices on Earth. Every year, more than 7 million tons-a tenth of the world's catch-goes back over the side, dead. This includes hundreds of thousands of turtles, seabirds, sharks, whales and dolphin.

Poignant and timely
22 July 2009 | by d-raymondoSee all my reviews

This won't be the most enjoyable film you ever see. It's not meant to be. The picture it paints is bleak, but as an educational documentary it is a 'must see'. It explains in an engaging way the state of our oceans. Fish stocks in general are down by 90%. By approx 2050 there will be NO FISH in the sea. If enough people saw this film we would stand a chance of managing the planet's fish stocks. The visuals are poignant and vivid. It's not for the squeamish, but the sometimes gruesome fishing shots bring home just how massive the global fishing fleet is and how small a chance fish stand of evading our nets. It will influence the way you look at your next fish dinner forever. The problem with fishing is that it is done under or out to the sea. The trawlers are far away out of sight. The damage is hidden by trillions of gallons of water this documentary exposes the fishes plight, with an ever increasing global population we need to act on this now. The most important film documentary since an 'Inconvenient Truth'
