Everyone please watch this documentary! Please change your diet to save the fish! Please boycott the nets fishing the fish to extinction.

fantastic video about the decimation of the species that live in our oceans today, the problems of bi-catch, the politics of reporting and the difficulty in understanding how our industrial fishing activities are changing an important part of our world. Why we treat animals that come from the ocean differently than those we have on land, I will never know. Their blood is as red as ours.

An amazing film really worth watching. It is an eye opener about mass fishing and what the devastating consequences of it are. I wish everyone will watch this movie to learn more about how we can reverse the decline of many fish species we now simply take for granted!

A movie with a profound mesage.

Very well put together and presented in an intelligent manner.

Seafood is not part of my regular diet and will now faze it out as much as I can.

Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.

The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. Sundance took place in Park City, Utah, January 15-25, 2009.

In the film we see firsthand 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 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, The End of the Line 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 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.
