Imagine a world without fish.
That is the tagline of The End Of The Line – a movie that changed the way the world looked at seafood. The Economist describes it (accurately) as “The Inconvenient Truth about the oceans”. I have described the effects of over-fishing in my blog post today but for a short-track option watch the trailer below to see for yourself…
Tomorrow this incredibly powerful movie will be screened by the Western Earth Carers – that fabulous organisation that brought us the Less Is More Festival. Bring your own picnic (set yourself a challenge to go plastic free) and have a look into what you can do to minimise your contribution to our badly damaged oceans.
This is not a doomsday movie. It is an important resource that we all should see to understand how we can move forward and away from the looming disaster. This is not a film telling you to never eat fish again. Charles Clover who wrote the film still eats fish himself but is selective. Knowledge is power.
Sustainable Fishing expert Associate Professor Dr Jeremy Prince will present and provide some credible insight to Australian fisheries which will be extremely interesting. Bring your family and friends and get informed.
