The Netflix documentary Seaspiracy hit screens last week, taking a deep dive into what’s causing the rapidly declining state of the ocean.
Directed by British filmmaker Ali Tabrizi, the film follows his journey as he discovers the true cost commercial fishing is having on the sea, and what we stand to lose if we continue to allow this industry to run rampant across our blue planet.
After watching everything from whale hunts to industrial-scale bottom trawling, shark-finning to lice-infested fish farms, Tabrizi concludes (spoiler alert) that the oceans are in big trouble and the best way for him to be active on this issue is to avoid eating seafood. With global fishing supply chains so convoluted and complex, he concludes there’s no such thing as sustainable seafood – and vows to ditch the fish for good.
Sickening and corrupt. Stop eating fish. #Netflix
