The End of most Seafood by 2048?

Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048.

The End of the Line, is the first major feature documentary film, revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans.

The movie shows the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi, the impact on marine life resulting in a huge overpopulation of jellyfish and the profound implications of a future world with no fish… that would bring certain mass starvation.

Filmed over two years, it follows the investigative reporter Charles Clover, as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.

One of his allies is the former tuna farmer turned whistleblower Roberto Mielgo – on the trail of those destroying the world’s magnificent bluefin tuna population.

Filmed all across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, this movie is a wake-up call to the world.

The End of the Line will question the way you view fish and the oceans they live in.
