Description: The End of the Line, is the world?s first major feature documentary about the devastating impact over fishing has had, and is having, on our oceans. Based on the book by former Telegraph journalist Charles Clover, and filmed over two years, The End of the Line provides a dramatic expose of those in power who are taking advantage of the seas with catastrophic consequences on the world?s fish supplies.In The End of the Line, we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. The film examines the imminent extinction of blue-fin 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 with no fish, which would bring certain mass starvation. Filmed around 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. It is however a wake-up call which demonstrates the simple changes people can make to reverse the current predicament facing everyone. With many species on the brink of extinction, there has never been a more pressing need to bring this issue to the fore. The End of the Line shows that we can all enjoy fish, but encourages viewers to think more carefullyabout where their fish is coming from.
