For our first Environmental Emergency Film Night, we will show The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. The film examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation; and much more. It 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. Filmed 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, The End of the Line is a wake-up call to the world.
